One week left! GARNA photo contest fundraiser
GARNA is holding its 3rd annual photo contest for nature photos taken in the Upper Arkansas River Valley. This is an opportunity for local photographers to share their creative work, support GARNA and win prizes. Photos must be taken in the valley at a locale that communicates the beauty, grandeur, delight or special quality of the area. GARNA plans to produce and sell quality photographic folded note cards and other products featuring winning photos to publicize and raise funds for its education and conservation work. This year’s categories for submission are single element image (bird, flower, wildlife), mountain imagery, Buena Vista area nature and heritage, Salida area nature and heritage and holiday imagery. Submissions will be judged by an expert panel of professional photographers who will select a winner in each of the five categories and the top choices will be displayed on the GARNA website and Facebook page to be voted for “people’s choice” winner. The submission deadline is September 26. Information and instructions on how to submit photos are at garna.org/calendar/photo-contest-2016. For questions, please contact GARNA at 539-5106.
