The mission of the Highlands Art League is to encourage emerging and evolving artists of all ages and to positively impact our community through the celebration and exploration of the arts.
The Highlands Museum of the Arts (MoTA), a part of the Highlands Art League (HAL), is pleased to launch its second annual photography competition and exhibition, which will be held July 10 – September 10, 2015.
This year’s theme is “Captured: Downtown Sebring” as MoTA is partnering with the Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to feature the unique images that are only found in Downtown Sebring. The competition was open to local and regional photographers of all ages. This year’s competition has been expanded to include a special youth category for photographers under the age of 18.
Competition winners were announced at the Opening Reception on July 10. Cash awards totaling $500 were presented.
