Announcing the 7th Annual Laurentian Chapter Photo Contest
We are pleased to announce the Seventh Annual ADK Laurentian Chapter Photo Contest. The contest is open to members of the Adirondack Mountain Club, who may submit photos taken anywhere during the contest period; and to non-member participants on Laurentian Chapter outings, who may submit photos taken during those outings during the contest period. Photographs taken in the period October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015 are eligible. All trip photos used in Laurentian Chapter publicity during the contest will be entered automatically. Entrants must allow the photos to be used in chapter publicity.
In recent years, the photo contest has come to serve as the chapter photo archive. For this reason, photographers are encouraged to send entries from all chapter trips, in addition to the special few photographs that are taken over the course of a year.
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.
Photo contest winners will be announced at the Laurentian Chapter Annual Meeting in November, 2015. A Grand Prize photo will be selected. Best photos and honorable mention will also be selected in the categories:
In 2015, an award will also be made for the best “selfie” photo.
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 (photo file size of at least 500kbytes are best). Submitters are encouraged to include descriptive titles with their submissions.
Submit photo entries to Tom Ortmeyer at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions or want to transfer photos in other ways, contact Tom at that address or at (315) 265-8219.
