There is still time to enter the Ninth Annual Amateur Wildlife Photo Contest, but don’t delay – the deadline is May 6th – just around the corner.
The Marco Island Historical Museum has partnered with the City of Marco Island and the Coastal Breeze News to present the Ninth Annual Amateur Photo Contest highlighting our area’s unique flora and fauna. The selection of winners will be exhibited at the museum from May 13 to June 30, 2016.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and what began as a celebration of Earth Day has grown into a photographic tribute to the beautiful Southwest Florida area in which we live. It’s a great competition if you’re a nature lover, a photography aficionado, or you “accidentally” captured that perfect shot.
The categories are: land animal, marine animal, birds, insects, trees and landscapes (one category), black and white, and creatively altered. Amateur photographers must be 14 years old and up to enter. Photo subjects must be of native Southwest Florida species taken in the last year.
There is no cost to enter. For further information or to pick up entry forms and releases, call 239-393-4991. Entries can be mailed or brought to the Coastal Breeze News office at 1857 San Marco Road, #216, Marco Island, FL 34145.
