What is the photo contest?
Between the ubiquitous cell phone cameras, as well as the great new digital point and shoot cameras and the terrific SLRs out there, it seems that everyone is a photographer nowadays. And what better place to capture beautiful and interesting images than our Montour Trail, right? So, to that end the Montour Trail Council conducts a bi-monthly photo contest. Entered photos displayed on in our photo album. All photos submitted before the next newsletter deadline will be given careful consideration by the Montour Trail’s crack photo judges. (No, the judges do not smoke crack, but they might conduct their deliberations from a local pub that has WiFi.)
The winner of each bi-monthly contest will receive Montour Trail accoutrements worth thousands of pennies and selected just for them. But of course, what are a few baubles compared to the inestimable feeling of accomplishment you will receive from knowing that your photographic skills have finally received the recognition they deserve? Winners will also have their photo published (with their name) in the Montour Trail Newsletter for all to adore and admire! What could be better than that?
All submissions will be added to the trail’s photo album.
Everyone is invited to submit one photo for each newsletter. Content, composition, and artistic expression will be taken into account. Subjects might include, but are not limited to, trail users, flora and fauna, exercise equipment, pets, trail structures and the like. The trail should be included in the shot but is not absolutely necessary.
So email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and a brief description of where on the trail the picture was taken.
