Blowing Rock Art & History Museum (BRAHM) will host WFDD’s Photo of the Year contest, taking place in the Alexander Community Gallery from February 8th to March 19th.

Beginning in February, BRAHM will display 53 images taken from the surrounding region, all highlighting the beauty of our local communities. Featuring all of the 2021 winners of WFDD’s Photo of the Week challenge, these images range from sunsets to sunrises, rivers to mountains, plants to animals, and plenty more. Each image captures the wonders and joy that our communities have continued to find in the past year.

Patrons will be able to vote for their favorite images, and the winner will be listed as WFDD’s Photo of the Year. This contest will take place starting Tuesday February 8th and end on Saturday March 19th. This event is free to participate in, and we highly encourage the community to come and view these captivating photos.
