The master-planned community of Summerlin is accepting submissions to its 2021 Summerlin Photography Competition, open to both professional and amateur photographers 18 and older. Submissions will be accepted through Sept. 9 under the Event section at Summerlin.com.
Winners will be announced and featured at the 2021 Summerlin Festival of Arts, Oct. 9-10, at Downtown Summerlin. Winning photos may be displayed at Downtown Summerlin throughout the year and will be used on Summerlin social media channels with credit given to photographers.
Photographers are invited to submit photos in three categories: architecture, man-made landscapes and natural landscapes within and immediately adjacent the community. To qualify, architectural and man-made landscapes as subject matter must be located within Summerlin; natural landscapes must be located in Summerlin or within the adjacent Red Rock Canyon National Conversation Area/Spring Mountains area.

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience for Summerlin, the community has long been the subject of thousands of photos seen around the world.
“Summerlin is well-known for both its natural and man-made beauty, so the photo competition is the perfect way to invite shutterbugs to celebrate the community’s inherent splendor. From the stunning red rocks that frame the community’s western edge, to contemporary architecture and well-manicured parks, streetscapes and common areas, Summerlin offers no shortage of ideal subject matter for photographers. We are excited to start receiving submissions.”
Photos will be juried by a team of professional photographers. Winners in each category will receive a Downtown Summerlin gift card valued at $250 and a professional-quality print of their winning photo that will be displayed Oct. 9-10 at the Festival of Arts. Runners-up in each category will receive a $50 Downtown Summerlin gift card.
