Photo Contest 

Calling all prairie picture takers: Now is a great time to be thinking of taking photos that can be entered into conference photo contest. 

There will be 5 categories that you may enter photos for, with a limit of 5 photos per person, one for each category. A prize winner will be selected for each category and the grand prize winner will be the one of those five that gets the most votes from conference attendees.

The categories are: flora/fauna, landscape, people, seasons, and a new one this year, "anything goes". This one could be a shot with super-saturated colors, use of an artsy app, wabi-sabi (beauty in decay), or even black and white. This is one that you could really have fun with. The winner, runners-up and other submissions may be featured in The Prairie Promotor newsletter, on The Prairie Enthusiasts social media pages, and in the eNews. Copyright remains with the photographer. You must be a member of The Prairie Enthusiasts to participate.

Please don't think you don't have a chance since you don't have extra-fancy gear as last year's grand prize winner used a little point-and-shoot camera that he keeps in his pocket in a plastic baggie.

Send all entries to [email protected] between 1-1-2022 and 2-1-2022.
