Freeze Frame Bogota
Deadline: February
Help us journey through Bogota’s 125 years by participating in an artistic celebration of its anniversary! We’re looking for photos and stories throughout the decades that represent a freeze frame in our continuously evolving story.

Those wishing to participate should submit a photo along with a short essay on their memories of Bogota at that time. Contributors selected to participate will be invited to attend a short workshop in April to prepare their photos and stories for exhibit in the library this May.

To submit, send your photo and essay to by February 28.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the deadline to submit?
The deadline to submit is Thursday, February 28 at 11:59 p.m.

Can I just submit a photo?
In order for the community to appreciate the depth of Freeze Frame Bogota, a short recollection is required. Don’t worry if you’re a bad writer! Our workshop in April will help get your words in tiptop shape.

What if I only have recent photos?
Any photos from 2018 and earlier are eligible. If you’re a newer resident, your essay can reflect why you chose to move to Bogota and how your photo represents the town.

If my photo is chosen, do I have to attend the workshop?
Attendance at the workshop is not required, but highly recommended.

How long should my essay be?
150-750 words is ideal, and the writing workshop can help you get it where it needs to be.
