Cantigny In Focus

Capturing the beauty of Cantigny Park through our visitors' eyes.

How it Works

  • Shoot photos of Cantigny Park and Cantigny Golf until the deadline on November 15, 2021.
  • Look for the new and unusual. Photos are judged on uniqueness and content. We are mostly looking for photos that best represent what Cantigny is all about.
  • Download the Photo Contest rules and application form.
  • Follow the instructions and send it in by the deadline with your selections.

Submitted images must be from the grounds of Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL, the 500-acre former estate of Robert R. McCormick and part of the Chicago-based Robert R. McCormick Foundation.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Project New Leaf, each of which have limited public access to the park, we’ve decided to postpone the 2020 edition of Cantigny in Focus, extending the entry deadline to November 15, 2021. Contest forms and photos already submitted in 2020 will be entered in the 2021 contest. If you already submitted an entry in 2020, you can enter again in 2021. Thank you for your understanding, and good luck!
