Wildlife Photo Contest

NEWBURYPORT, MA - Parker River National Wildlife Refuge is currently conducting its third annual Nature and Wildlife Photography Contest. Those wishing to participate in this year’s contest may submit matted prints now through Fri., October 4. The two themed categories are Wildlife and Landscapes/Seascapes. Further categorization includes images taken with a “point and shoot” camera versus those captured with a camera with interchangeable lenses (e.g., digital single lens reflex or DSLR). Finally, entries will be judged within two age categories – adult and youth (under age 18).

A panel of judges – comprised of refuge staff and experienced photographers – will select this year’s contest winners. The winners will be announced during the refuge’s annual Phabulous Photo Weekend (October 18th – 20th). Hunt’s Photo, a photo contest co-sponsor, will provide a $100.00 gift card to the “Best in Show” and a $50.00 gift card to first place in each category. The winning contest entries will be placed on exhibit in the refuge visitor center for the next year.

Contest participants are allowed to submit a total of two prints. A $5.00 application fee will cover one or two entries. Maximum allowable print size is 8” x 10”. All prints must be presented in a white matte. Qualifying images will have been taken within the boundary of any of the following national wildlife refuges: Parker River, Great Bay, Wapack, Thacher Island, Rachel Carson, Great Meadows, Assabet River, Monomoy, or Oxbow. A complete list of contest guidelines is available through the refuge web site: http://www.fws.gov/refuge/parker_river/.

All contest entries will be on public display in the refuge visitor center during the first two weeks in October. The contest is sponsored by the refuge, the Photographic Society of Parker River NWR, and Hunt’s Photo.
