The Conservancy is pleased to announce a new juried photo contest for the Upper Delaware River region, open to professional and amateur photographers. Sharing Place: Eagles and Their Environs invites photographers to capture striking eagle-inspired photos in four categories: eagles; healthy eagle habitat; factors important to eagle welfare; and a wild card (What insights did you gain in the process of photographing eagles and their habitat? What did you learn? Think outside the box!)
Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, composition, clarity and quality, and impact. The Conservancy is offering a guided Photo Workshop Bus Tour on Saturday, February 3rd, but participation in the bus tour is not required to enter the contest.
Photographers may submit entries from January 15th until February 15th. The winning 15 photos will be chosen by a panel of judges (biographies are included in the Official Rules, below), along with one People’s Choice option, and will be hung at the ARTery gallery in Milford, PA, beginning with a reception on April 21st from 6pm-9pm and on display until May 7th. The ARTery is a cooperative owned and operated by successful and emerging artists and artisans from the Tri-State area.
Photographers are invited to submit no more than two photos to the contest and must print and mail the Acknowledgement Form in the Official Rules to be eligible for entry. For full contest details, please download the Official Rules, below. Remember to follow Eagle Etiquette when photographing eagles or their habitat. For questions about the photo contest, please contact Outreach Coordinator Jason Zarnowski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-226-3164 ext. 6.
