2019 theme "a picture can speak a thousand words"

2019 MMVCT Art & Photography Competition

The 2019 Theme, " A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words" challenged artists and photographers to create a picture or photograph along with a title that would tell a story or convey an emotion.  The entry should make us curious as to what story it can tell.   Expressing emotion through art or a photograph can "speak a thousand words".

Community Bank Category

Community Bank proposed a separate award for art pieces or photographs that were created or specific to the Mid Mon Valley.  

Individual Awards from local businesses and private donors

Local businesses donated individual awards to support the Mon Valley Artists and Photographers, choosing a photograph or art piece that spoke to them.
