Summerlin Photography Competition

July 20, 2021 - September 9, 2021,


If taking beauty shots of Summerlin and nearby Red Rock Canyon is your thing, take note! The 2021 Summerlin Photography Competition, open to both professional and amateur photographers ages 18 and older, is accepting photo submissions from July 19 – Sept. 9.

Winners will be announced and featured at the 2021 Summerlin Festival of Arts, October 9-10, at Downtown Summerlin®.  Winning photos may also 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 Conservation Area/Spring Mountain area. For a Summerlin boundary map, check here.

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, SVP, 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 at the Festival of Arts October 9-10, 2021.  Runners up in each category will receive a $50 Downtown Summerlin gift card.
