The Cantigny Experience at a glance:

Photo Contest

Cantigny in Focus 

Cantigny in Focus is an annual event for our guests who are amateur photographers and who enjoy shooting the beauty of Cantigny. We began this contest in 2006 with the express purpose of capturing every part of Cantigny through our visitors' eyes. We hope you will stretch your photographic craft and shoot truly one-of-a-kind shots of our beautiful park through the lens of your own unique perspective. 

How it works:

  • Shoot photos of Cantigny Park and Cantigny Golf until the deadline in November 2017.
  • 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.
