The Inaugural Sahuarita Photography Contest will award cash prizes in multiple categories, showcase the winners in a series of media outreach and social media promotions, as well as publish the winning photographs locally for display.


The Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance (SAACA) and the Town of Sahuarita are partnering up to capture the essence of life in Sahuarita with the inaugural “Capturing Community: Community Photography Contest in Sahuarita, AZ.” The mission of the creative placemaking project is to encourage creativity and exploration while illuminating the community through diverse perspectives and eyes.

This contest allows people to see the landscapes, everyday living, wildlife, and commerce that make the community and region of Sahuarita, AZ, so unique.

All the winning photos will be displayed on a dedicated website. The category-winning photos will also be publicized in local media and press opportunities. Over $2,000 will be awarded in prizes to category winners.
