PHOTO CONTEST | Confluence: Land, Water, Wildlife

The Conservancy is pleased to announce our sixth annual juried photo contest for the Upper Delaware River region, open to professional and amateur photographers. Confluence: Land, Water, Wildlife invites photographers to capture striking nature photos in five categories: landscape, wildlife, macro, water, the Van Scott Nature Reserve, and a youth category for photographers under age 18. Without disturbing or harming any creature or its habitat, be creative in showcasing the diverse wildlife, plants, and special places of our region. Photos must be taken in the Upper Delaware River region as defined in the contest rules.

Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, composition, clarity and quality, and impact.

Photographers may submit entries from August 1 until August 31, 2022, and entry forms will be open during that time. The winning photos will be chosen by a panel of volunteer judges, along with one People’s Choice, and will be hung at the ARTery gallery in Milford, PA, in November 2023 with an afternoon reception on November 11. The ARTery is a cooperative owned and operated by successful and emerging artists and artisans from the Tri-State area. Photo contest judges are Mary Sue Sweeney Price, Marie Liu, Nancy Kiesendahl Bloch, and Stephen Geldman (please review the contest rules for more information about the judges).

Photographers are invited to submit no more than two photos to the contest. Entrants must agree to the Official Rules and submit a $15 entry fee to be eligible (youth entries are free). Please contact Bethany Zarnowski with any questions.

Please review the Official Contest Rules, as they have changed.
