like through YOUR lens?

The Merrimack’s Annual
Community Photo Contest

If you’ve got a knack for photography, a competitive spirit, and love bringing home some extra cash, you’re going to want to get in on this. Join The Merrimack’s 2024 Community Photo Contest for your shot at being featured in our campaign. Your pictures could be seen by thousands in our upcoming calendar, on our website and more!

Imagery Recommendations

Winning images should showcase the unique character and beauty of New Hampshire. Get out there and capture the beauty of your favorite walk, the essence of the local coffee shop, or the simple charm of your hometown. Be original; it’s all about seeing our community through your lens. The Merrimack wants to truly capture what it’s like to live, work, and play in New Hampshire!
