The Queens Chronicle’s 14th annual Holiday Photo Contest again looks a little different than the usual event our readers have enjoyed since 2008. But you’re still invited!

As always, we ask that you take pictures of anything that reflects the season — lights, miniature villages, snowy landscapes, joyous children and families, whatever it might be — and send them on in. The challenge is different during the Covid-19 pandemic, but it’s one our readers will meet, just as they did a few months ago during our 13th annual Summer in the Borough Photo Contest. You might be inspired by these high-quality past entries, by Kimberly Graves, top, and Kayla Luongo.
