Ready, set, snap! Want to see yourself on the big screen during URJ Biennial 2019? Here’s your chance to share your congregation’s best moments with 5,000 Reform Movement friends.

Do you have great photos on your congregation's website, Facebook page or Instagram? Awesome photos of holiday celebrations, Shabbat, Havdalah, or social action programs at your congregation? Beautiful photos that demonstrate the vibrancy and diversity of your community? Enter the Biennial 2019 Photo Contest for a chance at a starring role at McCormick Place in Chicago!

To enter, simply submit photos that capture the spirit of your congregation’s Jewish life for a chance to win a $300 Amazon gift grand prize. Second prize is a $150 Amazon gift card, and five runners up will win $50 Amazon gift cards. The winning photos (and many others) will be featured throughout the URJ Biennial.

The URJ's Marketing and Communications staff will judge the entries and select winners based on creativity, overall appearance, and originality. Visit the URJ Biennial website for rules and requirements, and to submit your photos. You may enter as many photos as you’d like.

All entries must be received by November 26, 2019. Winners will be announced during the Biennial, between December 11-15, 2019, in the daily email update. (Sign up for URJ Biennial updates at URJ.org/Subscribe).

We’re looking forward to a picture-perfect Biennial… and we hope you are, too!
