Chapter to Hold Photo Contest
Entries Due by October 31, 2009
Many good photographs have been taken on Laurentian Chapter outings. They feature the faces of participants, show outdoor activities, and highlight the spectacular landscapes of the Adirondack region. While admiring a recent example, it occurred to us that documenting chapter activities in photos deserves encouragement; it was only a small step from there to the idea of a photo contest.
The contest is open to members of ADK and participants on Laurentian Chapter outings, and will run from 1 May 2009 to 31 October 2009.
For ease of handling, digital photos are preferred, but hardcopy versions are acceptable. If your photos are originally digital, please submit the highest resolution you have. If they are originally film and you have a scanned version, you may submit the latter with the possibility of using negatives for final printing. Photos must have been taken within one year of the date of submission. All trip photos sent for use in chapter publicity during the contest will be entered automatically. Entrants must allow the photos to be used in chapter publicity.
The criteria are: technical quality; artistic expression; and extent to which the photo conveys the Chapter’s goals of conservation, education, and responsible outdoor recreation. A nominal cash prize of $60 will be awarded to the top entry, along with recognition at the chapter’s annual fall potluck meeting in November.
Betsy Tisdale has volunteered to judge the contest. John Barron and Dick Mooers are the contest organizing committee. Please send photos to John, at email@example.com. If you have questions or want to transfer photos in other ways, contact John at that address or (613) 828-2296, or Dick Mooers at (315) 265-2774 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
