Schuylkill Action Network Photo Contest Contest Entries Due

Photographers have just two weeks to enter the Schuylkill Shots Competition, the theme of which is Pennsylvania’s Schuylkill River.  The Schuylkill Action Network’s call for entries ends October 30; top prize: a $300 gift card.

People of any age and skill level can submit up to nine photographs, or three per category.  These include Wild & Scenic, Fun on the Schuylkill, and Tip Top Tap.

“Autumn leaves make this the perfect time to capture a prize-winning photograph,” said Tom Davidock, Schuylkill Action Network coordinator at the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary.  “The Tip Top Tap category, in particular, allows for a lot of creativity.  It’s the one showing tap water’s many uses, including cooking, drinking, swimming and so on.”

Participants in the Schuylkill Shots Competition can submit and share their entries online.  Visitors do not have to enter the contest to view or comment on its 60 or more photos.  All they have to do is “like” the organization’s page.

A panel of SAN members will select 10 finalists per category by November 15.  The public will then have one month to vote for their favorites.  Those with the most votes will receive a $300 gift card provided by one of three sponsors.  These include the Philadelphia Water Department, Calumet Photo, and REI.  Other prizes include $100 gift cards for second place and $50 gift cards for honorable mention.

Photographs from the Schuylkill Shots Competition will be used in a travelling exhibit.  This will debut next year to celebrate the SAN’s 10th anniversary.
