Friends of Library Photo Contest - Deadline Extended!

The Friends of the Oceanside Public Library are hosting a photography contest and invite community members ages 18 and over to participate by June 15.

The contest is for amateur photographers in Oceanside and surrounding areas. The Friends of the Oceanside Public Library are looking for photographs taken within the City of Oceanside that represent each individual’s interpretation of what “community” and “joy” mean to them. There is an entry fee of $10 and a grand prize of a one-week stay in Big Bear. For more information please visit the contest website at

This is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library. All fundraising efforts by the Friends are used to support Library programs and services. Like many organizations, the Friends’ ability to raise funds has been severely impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can make a difference by visiting to donate or become a member for as little as $10 per year.

The Friends of the Oceanside Public Library is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and all-volunteer organization and may be reached by email at The Friends can also be found at and
