Lake County Audubon announces nature photo competition
Lake County Audubon Society announces its first photo competition, "Moments in Nature: Lake County Audubon Society Photography Contest."
Open to all, its purpose is to focus on nature in Lake County. The contest begins immediately and all entries must be received by July 31. The contest will be judged by Ralph Durham, winner of numerous awards at the Chicago Area Camera Clubs Association and president of the North Shore Camera Club.
The digital competition will be divided into two classes: Beginner and Advanced. A Beginner is classified as someone who has less than two years of experience in taking pictures using a point-and-shoot camera or camera phone. An Advanced photographer has at least two years of experience using an SLR (single lens reflex) camera.
Images can feature any kind of nature subject, but must have been taken in Lake County. Entries should be sent as small (less than 5MB) jpeg files to email@example.com.
Winners will be announced at the October Audubon meeting, published in the October/November/December 2015 Audubon Outlook newsletter and posted on the LCAS website and Facebook page.
In addition, winners will take part in a six-week exhibition at Brushwood Center beginning with a reception Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016. The show will remain on display at Brushwood until Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016.
Details and terms of photo submissions are available at www.lakecountyaudubon.org/information.
