Friends of the Wissahickon Announces 2012 Photo Contest
The Friends of the Wissahickon, Montgomery County, Friday announced the 2012 Wissahickon Photo Contest, sponsored by The Cedars House. Winners of the contest will be selected by the public through online voting.
Deadline for submissions is October 1 at 5 p.m. A winners reception will be held in November at The Cedars House in Wissahickon Valley Park.
FOW is looking for striking images taken in Wissahickon Valley Park that capture its natural beauty and wildness. Photographers may submit work in five categories: people; wildlife; landscape; structures; and FOW activities. A $100 prize will be awarded for Best in Show.
First Place winners in each category will receive a gift certificate for The Cedars House. Second place winners in each category will be invited to the winners reception. First Place winners in the Junior Competition (under 15) will receive $25 each.
Photos will be posted to FOW's Facebook page so the public may view all entries and vote for their favorites. Photographers will retain the rights to their photographs, but FOW retains the right to use all photo contest submissions on their website and in their publications, with credit being given to the photographer.
Entries should be sent electronically to FOW Outreach Coordinator Sarah Marley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete submission guidelines, rules, and an official entry form are available online or visit FOW’s office at 8708 Germantown Avenue.
