Jordan has been instrumental in the development  and continuation of the annual contest, first organized in 1997. The purpose was to promote the art of  photography in the Cape community by providing an opportunity for photographers to display their accepted work in the prestigious Chatham Creative Arts Center galleries. The annual contest now regularly attracts upwards of 150 entries. In Jordan's words, " It has been rewarding to see the art of photography continuing to grow, along with the development of Cape photographers' technical skills and artistic visions. There is a lot of photographic talent on the Cape."

There is an entry fee of $10 per piece and individuals may enter up to three prints which may be Black & White or Color. There is one open category with no specified theme.  Brochures, including entry rules and entry form can be found at many Cape libraries and shops and can be downloaded and printed from the Cape Cod Viewfinders website:
