Wildlife Photography Contest

The Department of Parks and Community Renewal and the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders  announce the Wildlife Photography Contest 2013 at Mountainside’s Trailside Nature and Science Center. Amateur photographers, starting from age 6, are invited to enter their photographs of wild species in their natural habitat.

One person can submit maximum of two pictures, but only pictures of wildlife species native to the US are eligible for submission. Pictures of pets or domestic animals or exotic wildlife species will not be considered in the list. All pictures should be unframed, un-matted and 5” x 7” color prints or black and white. Pictures must be submitted by 12th April, Friday.

Linda Carter, the Freeholder Chairman told that wild animals are challenging photographic subjects and the Wildlife Photography Contest is a great opportunity for people of all ages to put their skills to the test and attempt to capture animals in their natural habitat.

Photographs in the Wildlife Photography Contest will be judged by professional and local photographers. Prizes will be handed in each of 3 age groups: 6 – 11 years, 12 – 17, and 18 above, based on composition, originality, artistic merit and technical excellence.

Winners will be declared on 28th April, Sunday, during Trailside’s Wild Earth Fest. All snaps will be showcased at Trailside’s Visitor Center through 24th May.
