We regret that we are going to have to call off the Texas Photo Fest today.  It is predicted to rain in our area all day.

Please call the Smithville Chamber of Commerce with any questions you may have. [masked]


Tina Smith


Smithville Area Chamber of Commerce



All ages, all camera types - digital or film -- and all skill levels are welcome. There is a contest for those smart phone users for Instagram photos. There will be models galore on Main Street for the 4th annual Texas Photo Festival in historic Smithville.
Enter the free photo contest sponsored by The Smithville Times for registered participants to cap the day with categories for all age groups. Nikon U.S.A has provided a Nikon D3200 camera kit for our top prize in the 14 and over age category of the Photo Contest - value approx. $1,000.00.
There's also an Instagram Photo Contest and a Fan Favorite Model. See the website for details
Again, it's all free and it's all fun. All contests will only use photos taken the day of the event within the city limits of Smithville, Texas.

Event hosted by the Smithville Music & Film Commission.

    I've never used my Flickr account so here's my question. To enter the photo contest they ask for my Flickr account. I have a Yahoo mail address, a Flickr username and password. What exactly do I write down as my Flickr account?

      you need to go to your Flickr account and load a few photos into it. They want you to share your photos on Flickr so people will see them.

    If anybody wants to carpool start some chatter. If someone has suggestions for a safe place to leave the cars, we can match up some folks to drive or share the ride. It's a great way to meet your fellow members.

      The contests are for photographers, but anyone in the city square is considered a model. You will have to sign a release upon entry and anyone can shoot your picture and use it for whatever they like.
