Oldsmar kicks off annual “Show Us Your Oldsmar” photo contest

Oldsmar is chock-full of photogenic subjects, like these colorful murals at Mobbly Bayou Wilderness Preserve.

The City of Oldsmar kicked off its annual “Show Us Your Oldsmar” photo contest on Tuesday, Mar. 20, and this year, the top three entries will net some cool cash prizes.

According to officials, photos must be of Oldsmar and be hi-resolution (300 dpi) to be considered.

  • 1st place—$200.00
  • 2nd place—$100.00

Also, the winning entry as well as some runner-up photos will be used for the City’s annual Budget Report, with photo credit given.
