Delaware County Conservation Photo Contest

Delaware County Conservation Department’s 2019 Photo Contest

Do you have a spectacular shot of nature or people enjoying nature taken in Delaware County?  Keep your camera handy as you visit any Delaware County Park and Wildlife Area.  Keep in mind the categories: Nature, Wildlife and People Enjoying a Delaware County Park or Wildlife Area.  Now is the time to review your pictures of things you have done throughout the year.

Delaware County Conservation is sponsoring a 2019 photo contest of interesting and fun things in Delaware County.  People of all ages are encouraged to spend some time exploring Delaware County and the County Parks and Wildlife Areas.  There is still time to go exploring and to take a unique photo and submit it to Delaware County Conservation Department and you could be a winner.

All photos must be taken in Delaware County, depict Natural Areas, and be taken by amateur photographers.  Photos must be taken in 2019, they can be either color or black and white prints but only size 4×6 will be accepted. Photos cannot be bordered, matted or mounted and must be printed on photo paper.  Photos that are emailed will not be accepted.

Photos can be entered in three different categories:

  • Nature – landscape, flowers, seasons, etc
  • Wildlife – no domestic animals
  • People enjoying a Delaware County Park or Wildlife Area – photos must be labeled with the Park or Wildlife Area where taken. They must be taken in a DELAWARE COUNTY PARK – state and city parks will be disqualified.

Each photo entered must be labeled on the back and indicate where the picture was taken, category of the entry, your name, address and phone number.  Each individual can enter up to three photos in each category.  Winning photos in each category will be awarded $30 for 1st place, $20 for 2nd place and $10 for 3rd place.  An individual can only win once per category.

All entries must be received by 4:00 pm on Wednesday, October 16, 2019.

The Conservation Board reserves the right to make copies of any photo entries and may use them in future promotional materials.  By submitting an entry, the photo becomes the property of Delaware County Conservation Department.
