The Franklin Township Trails Advisory Committee (TAC) is interested in promoting trail use by the township residents.  Toward that end, the TAC is continuing the following program: Take-a-Photo-from-a-Trail contest

Franklin Township trails have places that, when captured in a photo, could encourage others to get out and explore.  To encourage expanded trail usage, the TAC is soliciting photographs taken from trails located in the township and will award a prize to the best photograph taken from each trail.  Entry rules for the photography contest will be as follows:

  1. Entries must be received by Monday, July 3, 2017. The TAC, at its first meeting after July 3rd, will select a winner in each category based on the minimum contest requirements.
  2. The photo may be submitted either:
    • electronically via email to Franklin Trails or
    • printed copy delivered to the Trails Advisory Committee, Municipal Building, 475 DeMott Lane, Somerset, NJ 08873.
  3. Each photo must be clearly identified as to the trail from which it was taken and the date taken. The submitted photo does not have to be taken in 2017. Photos can be from any year as long as the date and location of the photo are identified.
  4. The Trails Advisory Committee reserves the right to display entrants’ photos at Township events, such as Franklin Day, Canal Fest, and other venues as part of this contest
  5. Winners will have their photo displayed on the Township’s website and awarded a certificate and small prize (a baseball cap imprinted with “Franklin Township Trails”)
