The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County presents a juried exhibition showcasing works from some of the region’s outstanding student and adult photographers. Entrants may submit one photo of any subject taken within the I-275 loop and a panel of judges from the Photography Club of Greater Cincinnati selects the best entries. The winning photographs hang in the Atrium of the Main Library for Frame Cincinnati Photography. The contest is presented in partnership with the Photography Club of Greater Cincinnati.

The Library fulfills its mission to connect people to the world of ideas and information through a robust website, a collection of nearly 9 million items, a diverse program schedule, ready reference services, free Internet and WIFI, outreach services, homework help, and more.
