Submissions to the “Uniquely Lewes” photography contest were accepted online between July 8 and 15, 2020 via the Zwaanendael Museum’s Facebook page. A total of 23 photos were accepted for participation in the contest. These images were posted on the museum’s Facebook page where followers were asked to “vote” for the winning photographs by “liking” or reacting to the individual photos. Votes were collected for one week from July 16 to 23, 2020. The three photos with the top number of reactions were deemed the first-, second- and third-place winners and were awarded corresponding prizes.

The winning photographs will be posted on Zwaanendael Museum and Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs social media platforms and will also be printed and displayed in the outdoor kiosk next to the museum on Kings Highway.
