October 19, 2016

The Bristol Train Station is one of the city‘s most photographed landmarks and now some of the best photos will be available in a calendar. Photographers of all skill levels are invited to submit their best photos to the Bristol Train Station Photo Contest now throughOctober 31. A committee of judges will select their twelve favorites to be printed in the calendar along with one image for the cover. The chosen photos and photographers information will also be on display in the Train Station in 2017.

“The idea came to us when we noticed how many amazing photos were shared on the Train Station’s social media pages every week,” says Brittany Sullivan, Manager of the Bristol Train Station. “We wanted to share the work of these talented photographers while showcasing the beauty of a building we are all very proud of.”

The Bristol Train Station present day building was constructed in 1902 and fully renovated to historic standards by the Bristol Train Station Foundation in 1999. The building is currently a meeting space and event venue for the entire community.

The photo contest is open to both professional and amateur photographers, and photographers may enter as many photos as they like. The deadline for entry is October 31. High-resolution photos must be submitted in order to be considered for the calendar. The Bristol Train Station asks that all participants please obey all state and local railroad safety laws while participating in the contest.
