Entries Now Being Accepted To State Parks & Forests Thru The Seasons Photo Contest

The PA Parks and Forests Foundation is now accepting entries to the Parks and Forests Thru The Seasons Photo Contest.  Submissions are due September 8.

The contest is open to professionals and amateurs alike, as well as young photographers 12-17, to vie for supremacy in a variety of categories, capturing all that is special and the memories that are made in our state parks and forests.

The categories include--

-- Selfie: You love to commemorate your visits; we love to see them.

-- Dogs In the Outdoors: They can’t take a selfie, but you can share one of your furry family members enjoying the outdoors. (Please note: If dogs are required to be on leash in the place where they are photographed, we will scrutinize the photos for appropriate behavior.)

-- Other Wildlife Sightings: From birds and bears to snakes and salamanders, we love to see who’s sharing our lands.

-- Park and Forest Adventures: Show us how you like to explore, learn, or relax in Pennsylvania’s State Parks and Forests.

-- Motion: Capture movement in Pennsylvania’s State Parks and Forests, be it human or natural.

-- Intergenerational Joy: A special part of our state parks and forests legacy is the gathering of everyone from young to old. Show us your family (however that is constituted) at rest and at play – making millions of memories.

-- Young Photographers 12-17: The creative young photographers dazzle us every year with their artistic eye.

Public Voting to identify winners will begin September 16.   Once selected, our photo showcase gallery goes on tour across the Commonwealth.
