Do you have what it takes to be the first ever Face of the New Haven Canal Days?

The New Haven Festival Committee is launching a brand new photo contest that will decide whose face will grace the fliers and website of the 2013 Canal Days Festival.  All residents of New Haven and past attendees of the festival are encouraged to participate.  To enter the contest, participants should submit a .jpeg or .gif file photo via e-mail to or submit a high quality printed photo to the attention of Jessica at the New Haven Adams Township Parks Department office which is located at 1125 Hartzell Street, New Haven, Indiana.  All entries should include the entrant’s full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.

Photo contest guidelines are as follows:
1. All photographs must be from a prior New Haven Canal Days Festival.

2. Photographs that emphasize the festival’s 2013 theme, “Faith & Family,” will be given

special consideration.

3. Photographs that capture key moments at prior festivals, such as the Midway, Parade, Entertainment Stage, Kid’s Day, or Food Tent will also be given special consideration.

4. All entrants must give the Festival Committee permission to use their photos in publicity for the 2013 Canal Days Festival.

The winner of the Face of the New Haven Canal Days Festival will win a pair of all-access ride passes for one night of the Canal Days Festival and will be invited to participate in the 2013 parade.

All submissions must be received by March 15th, 2013.  The winner of the Face of New Haven Canal Days contest will be chosen in April by the Festival Committee.

Contact with any questions about the contest.
