Friends of Roxborough State Park Photo Contest Entry Form (for the 2015 Calendar)

The purpose of the Friends of Roxborough interpretive calendar project is to support the educational outreach and interpretive mission of Roxborough State Park. Photography brings visitors to the park, but it can also take the park to people who may never step foot in it. We are looking for striking images that highlight the dynamic nature of plants and animals in the park, geological features, interesting atmospheric or astronomical conditions, seasonal changes and other natural phenomena. Selection Process: Photos will be selected in a two step process: 1) pre-screening by a panel of Roxborough State Park staff and/or naturalists, and, 2) selection of winning photos by an independent panel of experienced photographers. Grand Prize, first, second and third place winners will be identified. Photographers' names will not accompany the photographs until all selections are final; photographs will be anonymous throughout the judging and selection process. Recognition: Photographers will be notified by e-mail. The primary photographs will appear in a limited edition 2014 Friends of Roxborough State Park Calendar . Featured photographers will receive two free calendars for each photo selected. First, second and third place winners will receive additional recognition. Winning photos and photographer’s names will be posted in the Visitor Center. Winning photographers will be acknowledged on the web site, but no photos will be posted on the website without explicit permission to do so. This competition is open to Roxborough State Park visitors and volunteers. Only photos taken in or of Roxborough State Park are eligible for this contest.
