Today, the village still includes the Grist Mill, Miller’s House, Blacksmith Forge, Tenant House, McCourtney’s General Store, Jerusalem Mansion, Bank Barn, Springhouse, two-story Smokehouse/Dairy, and another residence. The Jericho Covered Bridge is located adjacent to the village. All of the buildings were built in the 1700s or 1800s, and are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

1. Entrants must be paid members of YCCC.
2. All entries must be the members’ own work.
3. There are 2 skill levels: Novice & Advanced. If you’re new, you may choose which you’d like to compete in. Within each skill level, there are 2 categories: Color & Monochrome. Each member may submit two entries in each category in their skill level, for a total of 4 images.
4. The Monochrome category includes black & white, sepia and other single tones. One of these images may have one other color added. Monochrome images with two or more colors added will be assigned to the color category.
5. Digital manipulation is allowed to the extent of cleaning up spots, adjusting tones and colors, and cropping. No composites are allowed other than focus stacking, HDR, and panoramas; in other words, it is forbidden to take an element from one image to place into another to create an altered reality — this includes sky replacement.
6. Photos may be entered in competition only once a year. Cropping, or changes from color to B&W, or vise versa, does not entitle reentry to any category within the same year. Any entry that wins an award may not be placed in future competitions. [This does not apply to any photography exhibitions that the club may hold or participate in.] Please keep a record of entry dates and awards won.
7. **Image files MUST be named as follows:**
A. Class: N for novice or A for advanced
