The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District is accepting submissions for the 7th Annual Photography Contest from amateur photographers throughout Hamilton County in youth and adult age categories.
Each participant can submit up to 5 entries showcasing the contest theme – Nature’s Renewal. Digital files and entry forms must be submitted by June 29. Please add a descriptive caption to each entry portraying how the photo relates to this year’s theme.
“We are excited to showcase various aspects of conservation through this year’s photo contest,” Diane Turner, Conservation Technician and Outreach Coordinator, said. “Our chosen theme is Nature’s Renewal and we hope to receive many great photo entries displaying not only renewal of natural resources, but also the renewal of Indiana wildlife, or the natural beauty of the Hamilton County countryside.”
New this year, Peoples’ Choice Award winners in each of the categories will receive a $50 prize. A panel of judges will choose additional winners for a total of four winners to be honored. Photo entries will be showcased at this year’s Hamilton County 4-H Fair, July 15-19. Additional information and entry forms are located at www.hamiltonswcd.org/photo-contest. Questions?
