Photography Contest for the Upper Delaware River Region

By Margaret Allen
The Delaware Highlands Conservancy is calling on photographers for its fourth annual juried photo contest for the Upper Delaware River region. Open to professional and amateur photographers. “Confluence: Land, Water, Wildlife” invites photographers to capture striking nature photos in five categories: landscape, wildlife, macro, water, and a youth category for photographers under age 18. Without disturbing or harming any creature or its habitat, photographers are encouraged to be creative in showcasing the diverse wildlife, plants, and special places of our region .Entries will be accepted from August 2nd through the 31st. Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, composition, clarity and quality, and impact, and must be taken in the Upper Delaware River region to be eligible. Photos may be taken during any season. We have more information on our website.

The winning 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, PA, in November. The ARTery is a cooperative owned and operated by successful and emerging artists and artisans from the Tri-State area. Photo contest judges are Nancy Kiesendahl Bloch, Mary Sue Sweeney Price, Marie Liu, and Stephen Geldman.
Photographers are invited to submit no more than two photos to the contest. Entrants must agree to the Official Rules and submit a $10 entry fee to be eligible; youth entries are free.
