Flanders Nature Center located in Woodbury on 5 Church Hill Road is holding a photography contest from October 14 through November 7 with prizes for the best submissions based on composition, image quality, originality and the story the image tells.
The photo contest is an invitation to capture the spirit and beauty of autumn with images that might include foliage or any activity that best depicts the season. The photos do not need to be taken on a Flanders’ property but instead can be taken anywhere that provides the photographer inspiration.
Contestants may submit up to 5 entries. All entries must be in digital formats of 6MB or less in size. Submissions should be emailed to Flanders offices by October 14. Along with an entry blank identifying the photographer of the photo for each submitted photo. The cost for one submission is $5.00, 2/$7.00, 3/ $10.00, 4/$13 and 5/$15. All proceeds to benefit Flanders programming.
Entry blanks as well as details on the contest can be found on their website at http://www.flandersnaturecenter.org or call Flanders at (203) 263-3711; Ext 10. All the submitted images will be judged by Flanders staff and experienced photography associates and shared in a special gallery on the Flanders web site after the winners have been announced on November 15, 2016.
