Friends of the Wissahickon Photo Contest Entries Due October 1

Photographers have only three more weeks to submit their photos of Wissahickon Valley Park to the Friends of the Wissahickon Photo Contest, sponsored by The Cedars House. Winners of the contest will be selected by the public through online voting.

The deadline for submitting photos and voting for your favorite is October 1, 2012, at 5 p.m. A winners reception will be held at The Cedars House in Wissahickon Valley Park (date to be announced).

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 are being 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.
