It’s time to submit your very best(est) photos to the Beaver Creek Reserve for their annual nature photography contest. Contestants may enter up to ten photos each with a $2 fee per photo, while youth photographers pony up $1 per photo. Each photo entered has the chance to appear in the Reserve’s 2013 calendar with the winning photos exhibited in the Wise Nature Center, September through November.  

The categories include Mammals, birds, dynamics of nature, landscapes and plant life, man and nature, a student category, and “other wildlife.”  The photos must be submitted with no frames or signatures and cannot extend larger than 12”x 16”. Winning entries will receive a gift certificate to Sharp Photo. All photos need to be submitted before Friday, May 31. You can download this PDF with more details.
