[ Delaware Highlands Conservancy To Begin Accepting Entries For Eagles & Their Environs Photo Contest Jan. 15 ]
The Delaware Highlands Conservancy will begin accepting entries for a new juried photo contest– Sharing Place: Eagles and Their Environs— for the Upper Delaware River region on January 15. The deadline for entries is February 15.
The contest is open to professional and amateur photographers who are invited to submit no more than two photos to the contest.
The Conservancy invites photographers to capture striking eagle-inspired photos in four categories: eagles; healthy eagle habitat; factors important to eagle welfare; and a wild card to feature insights gained in the process of photographing eagles and their habitat.
Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, composition, clarity and quality, and impact.
The Conservancy is also offering a guided Photo Workshop Bus Tour on February 3 with instruction from local photographer Sandy Long, but participation in the bus tour is not required to enter the contest.
Photographers must follow Eagle Etiquette when photographing eagles and avoid disturbing or disrupting the birds or their habitat.
The winning 15 photos will be chosen by a panel of judges, along with one People’s Choice, and will be hung at the ARTery gallery in Milford, Pike County, beginning with a reception on April 21st from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. and on display until May 7th. The ARTery is a cooperative owned and operated by successful and emerging artists and artisans from the Tri-State area.
The winning photos will be exhibited with the ARTery member artists’ own interpretations of eagles, raptors, and other species of birds. During the opening reception, members of the Conservancy will present a short background on the organization and eagles in the region.
