The deadline for the Greenbrier Valley Conservation District’s Conservation Photo Contest is quickly approaching. The contest is for amateur photographers in Greenbrier, Monroe and Pocahontas Counties. The contest is part of the WV Association of Conservation Districts’ Conservation Photo Contest and the National Association of Conservation Districts’ Conservation Photo Contest.
There are four main categories for photos: Conservation Practices, Close-Up Conservation, Conservation in Action and Conservation Across America. All photos submitted must be taken in West Virginia.
Black and white prints, color prints, color slides and prints from digital photos are all acceptable and will be judged together. Photos must be 8”x10” and must not be digitally altered or enhanced. Judges prefer that photos not be matted or framed. A completed entry form must accompany each photo. Photographs will be judged on technical merit, composition and creativity. Prizes will be awarded in adult and youth categories. Note that photos will not be returned and may be used by the GVCD in future publications.
The GVCD contest deadline is June 10. To obtain an entry form, or for more information, contact the GVCD Office at 179 Northridge Drive, Lewisburg, WV 24901, call 304-645-6173, email email@example.com or check their website at wvca.us/districts/gvcd.cfm.
