Our first ever photo and caption contest was such a success, we decided to do it again! This contest will focus on "picturing New York's Champlain Valley." We are asking for photos in following three categories. And please note that the caption is just as important as the photo.
1) Hiking the Trails - In this category we would like submissions that focus on people --- young and old, individuals or large groups --- all enjoying the trails. Then write a caption that tells a tale about the trail.
2) Scenic and Nature - Were you out for an early morning walk and got that "perfect" photo of the sun just breaking over the mountain? How did that make you feel? Share that and other scenic or nature photos with us!
3) Towns and Villages - New York's Champlain Valley is home to charming little villages and towns. Have you taken a photo that illustrates what you love about living in or visiting one of our little towns? Then tell the story behind the photo.
Each category will be awarded 2 prizes: A Judge's First Place Award of $150 and a "People's Choice" award of $100 for the most online votes. Remember that the captions are just as important as the photo. Captions should be 100 words or less.
Please send your photos with captions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, address, phone number, and email address and be sure to identify the category. Deadline for submissions is November 30, 2013.
We all know and love the Champlain Valley. Please help spread the word about our incredible trails, the people that live here, and our towns and villages by sharing your photographs and captions in our Fall Photo Contest!
