All photo entries will be exhibited on the City of Pawtucket website, www.pawtucketri.com. Submissions should be email to psz333@aol.com.

This annual contest provides an opportunity to bring awareness to the daily life, historic locations and the ever changing landscape of Pawtucket through the lens of a camera.
