2023 Celebrating Salem Photo Contest

Join us in celebrating Salem with beautiful pictures showing sites found throughout our town.  Perhaps there are lovely flower gardens, businesses, schools, attractions, events or homes that you would like to commemorate with a photo entry.  These entries can be from our memorable past or present day.

Black and white or color photos will be accepted and must be of good quality.  The photos should be digital and sent to or printed 5”X7” in size. Both ways must include the location of the picture and the name and address of the person submitting the photo on the back. A non-refundable entry fee of $10.00 is required for each photo entered. Make check to Salem Applebutter Festival.

Winners will be announced and awards presented at the conclusion of the Apple Butter Festival Little Apple Dumpling Children’s Pageant on Thursday, October 6th on the Depot Stage at approximately 5:00 PM.

The winning photos will be displayed in the lobby of the Salem Post Office for the next year.  All remaining photos will be returned following award announcements or can be picked up at the Apple Butter Shop.

If you have nice pictures and don’t want to participate in the contest, we can use them in a 24” by 16” framed picture mosaic in the shape of the Apple Butter Festival Logo.

For additional information, contact Jonathan Staddon at (304) 629-3202 or email us at or or the festival website for online registration
