Focus on the Boro, the Rutherford County community photo show and contest, returned for it's second year with a contest and an exhibit from June 3- July 5 in the City Hall Rotunda in Murfreesboro.
Each photographer may submit a total of three images across nine categories. The categories include people, landscape, still life, animals, flora, architecture, sports/action, and abstract/special effects.
The ninth, community focused category, Murfreesboro, is meant to "encourage residents to take pictures of the community and tell their stories," said Jessica Goings Nelson, former Murfreesboro Photography Laureate.
Focus is open to all photographers, with any level of experience, who live or work in Rutherford County.
Nelson, the 2017-2018 Murfreesboro Photography Laureate, has spent the last two years building a network of local photographers, from amateurs to experts, facilitating connections, classes, professional development, photography outings, and new friendships.
