Photos can be entered in five categories: Appreciation of Beauty; Kids in the Outdoors; Outdoor Recreation; Volunteers in Action; and Dogs in the Outdoors.

“The photo contest is one of our favorite activities of the year,” said PPFF President Marci Mowery. “We enjoy seeing Pennsylvania’s great public lands through the eyes of other park and forest enthusiasts.”

There will also be a Critics’ Choice Best in Show chosen from all submissions.

Best in Show winners will be printed on the cover of our fall newsletter with the top three in each category featured on the PPFF website, Facebook page and other electronic communications including Take Five/Fridays With Pam and PRESERVE/EXPLORE.
