Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Now Accepting Entries For Digital Photo Contest

Grab your camera and get to Hawk Mountain in Berks County, because November 26 marks the final day for local photographers to submit entries for the Hawk Mountain Digital Photo Contest.

Photographers of any skill level can enter their best photos taken at Hawk Mountain for an entry fee of just $5, which benefits the Sanctuary's education programs.

Participants can enter in as many of the 5 categories as they like, but only up to 2 photos per category.

Categories include Scenic Views and Wild Landscapes, Wild Avians, Native Wild Flora, Native Wild Fauna, and Macro Photography. All photos must be submitted online at hawkmountain.org/photocontest.

A winner and runner up will be chosen for each category. Honorable mentions and a staff pick will also be selected.

The winner for each category will receive $75 dollars and the runner up will receive $25. The award-winning photos will be displayed in an exhibit in the Wings of Wonder Gallery in the Hawk Mountain Visitor Center for a year and in the Autumn 2018 Hawk Mountain News.

The digital format of this contest allows any photographer to participate easily.

"We want people to get out here and explore the Mountain's trails, overlooks, and programs. This is the perfect chance to practice nature photography and capture the beauty of Hawk Mountain,"  says Gigi Romano, the Sanctuary's Communications Specialist. "It's a breeze to enter, and your submission fee directly benefits our work here on the Mountain."
