Community Photo Contest

Showcasing New Hampshire photographers from all skill levels? THAT’S Merrimack Style. Join The Merrimack’s 2023 Community Photo Contest for your shot at being featured in our campaign. Your art can be seen by thousands in our upcoming calendar, website and more! Winning photos will also receive $100 PER accepted image – that’s right, $100 for EACH winning photo! Why not take a shot? Show us New Hampshire through YOUR eyes!

Imagery Recommendations

Winning images should showcase the unique character and beauty of New Hampshire. We want to see people enjoying venues, attractions, and local businesses in the state. Many past winners have showcased the best of what it means to live, work, and play in New Hampshire.

Who Can Participate?

The contest is open to photographers of all levels – from amateurs to professionals. Yes, employees of Merrimack County Savings Bank and our affiliates ARE ELIGIBLE.

Judging is blind, so none of the judges are allowed to know who the entrants are – or anything about them – during the review process. Customers, non-customers, and employees have won previously.


The contest runs from Monday, April 3, 2023, through Wednesday, May 31, 2023. Entries must be received by the end of the business day (5pm EST) on Wednesday, May 31, 2023. Winners will be notified in early August.
