Roebling Suspension Bridge

The Roebling Bridge has been a popular subject for Greater Cincinnati photographers — and visitors — for over a century. The historic bridge, named after engineer John A. Roebling, was the longest suspension bridge in the world for nearly 20 years until Roebling's other famous project — the Brooklyn Bridge — broke the record. 

The Covington-Cincinnati Suspension Bridge Committee will host their annual photo contest this summer. Submissions for the contest will begin June 1 and will continue through June 30. Photographers can compete in either amateur or professional classes and in three different categories — black and white, photos that include the ferris wheel or stadium and photos with reflections.

Prizes include an exclusive photoshoot at the top of the bridge and a canvas-wrap print of the winning photo from photo and video gear company PROCAM, who is sponsoring the event. All photographers who enter will receive a free 8-inch-by-10-inch or 8-inch-by-12-inch print of their submitted photograph from PROCAM.

Photographers must be 18 or older to submit and must also be the photographer of the photographs submitted. Submission costs $20 for three photographs. To learn more, visit
