The Downtown Flushing Transit Hub Business Improvement District is hosting its second Flushing Photo Contest, which started Aug. 31 and will run through the end of December 2014.

“The photo contestants submit photos — it should be a positive image of downtown Flushing,” said Dian Yu, executive director of the BID. Hopefully, the photo tells a story — what it means to you.”

The contest winner, who will be selected by a panel of judges including a professional photographer and Tom Finkelpearl, of the Queens Museum of Art, will win an iPad. The runner-up will receive an iPad Mini and the third-place finisher will get an iPod Touch.

All of the winning entries will be displayed at the Flushing branch of the Queens Public Library and at the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel, according to Yu.

The contest runs for more than a year so photographers have a chance to capture the area in all four seasons, Yu said.
