Show us your neighborhood!

We want to see your neighborhood as you see it.  Send us pictures of your favorite homes or pictures of your neighborhood in action.

Street Photography

Show us Dundalk in action!

We want to see what your every day looks like.  This category covers everything from your daily commute to people watching at your favorite Dundalk restaurant.  Not sure if your photo is considered street photography? Check out some examples.


Show us how you experience COVID 19!

Photos can be anything from pictures of closed businesses to you and your family spending quality time together (or trying to get away from one another).

Life on the Water

Show us your life on the water!

We want to see how you and your loved ones take advantage of all the marvelous water front access in Dundalk.  It can be anything from enjoying time at one of the many waterfront restaurants, a day on the boat, or time spent with kids and pets at a waterfront park in Dundalk.


Show us your family, roommates or pets!

Photos may contain one or more people or animals.  Please keep in mind you are responsible for obtaining permission from your portrait subject to be reprinted as part of our photo contest.

Fan Favorite

Get your family and friends in on the action!

We will be posting submissions on Facebook monthly starting in June.  The photo with the most likes on Facebook is that month’s winner.  Fan favorite winners will be displayed in the Forge as part of the photo contest exhibition.
