The La Crosse Public Library is asking you to capture
a day in the life of La Crosse.
It's part of an upcoming photo contest the Library
is holding next month.
Anyone who's not a professional and has a camera can
submit a photo for a chance to win a handful of prizes.
A panel of judges from the library will select five
photographs to be put in a photo book which will be
displayed in the main library.
The goal is to give future generations an idea of
what life was like on a normal day in 2014.
One of the frustrating things about the recorded history
of the past of our city is that there is not a lot
of photographs of everyday life in the city.
Lots of pictures of buildings, prominent people, huge
events things like that, but nothing about everyday
life in La Crosse.
There is a catch.
Photographs must be taken during the 24-hour period
of August 16th.
All photographs must be taken within the city limits
of La Crosse.
Entries are limited to one photograph per person.
