    Fall 2012 Outdoor Photography Contest Information

    The Outdoor Photography Contest and Exhibit is annually sponsored by the Outdoor Recreation Center. The contest is open to amateur photographers.

    Submissions will be accepted beginning October 1st thru December 9th.

    Judging Criteria
    The Outdoor Photography Contest aims to highlight human or naturally powered outdoor recreation. The photographs are judged by presentation and appropriateness of category, as well as by technical skill with the camera and visual framing of subject. Leave No Trace principles will also be considered. The Contest Organizers reserve the right to refuse entries that do not meet these criteria. All photographs must be entered in a specific category.

    The categories are as follows:

    • Landscape: Photographs of large-scale scenes of nature as one might see while participating in human/natural powered outdoor recreational activities. No man-made structures.
    • Action Adventure: Photographs of people participating in human/natural powered outdoor recreational activities.
    • Wildlife & Still-Life: Photographs of wild animals in natural settings or close-up/isolated photographs of small-scale plants or natural scenes in natural surroundings as one might see while participating in outdoor recreational activities.
    • Cultural: This category includes adventure travel photographs that illustrate cultural significance of another society. This category can also include domestic photographs that picture wilderness settings with historically or culturally significant structures.
    • Stewardship:  Photographs of efforts to make the outdoors even more special.
