Send us your best shots of NJ by January 20, 2017 for the chance to be in the next issue of Urban Agenda Magazine!

By Sarah Emily Gilbert 

You might have photographed your favorite Jersey diner. Perhaps you’ve snapped a picture of a secret trail in the Garden State. Maybe, you’ve taken an image of a historical location in NJ, or better yet, a historic moment in your life. If you’ve shot a picture of New Jersey that represents your personal vision of the state, we want to see it!

The theme of Urban Agenda Magazine’s February photo contest is “My New Jersey.” Submit your favorite pictures of NJ for a chance to see it published in our upcoming print issue, which is distributed to over 35,000 homes and businesses in Bergen, Essex, Somerset, Union, and Morris counties.
