Delaware Highlands Conservancy Announces “Eagles and Their Environs” Photo Contest




The Delaware Highlands Conservancy is pleased to announce a new juried photo contest for the Upper Delaware River region, open to professional and amateur photographers. Sharing Place: Eagles and Their Environs invites photographers to capture striking eagle-inspired photos in four categories: eagles; healthy eagle habitat; factors important to eagle welfare; and a wild card to feature insights gained in the process of photographing eagles and their habitat.

Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, composition, clarity and quality, and impact. The Conservancy is also offering a guided Photo Workshop Bus Tour on Saturday, February 3rd with instruction from local photographer Sandy Long, but participation in the bus tour is not required to enter the contest.

Photographers are invited to submit no more than two photos to the contest during the entry period of January 15th to February 15th, and must print and mail the Acknowledgement Form included in the Official Rules to be eligible for entry, available for download at www.DelawareHighlands.org/photo-contest/. Photographers must follow Eagle Etiquette when photographing eagles and avoid disturbing or disrupting the birds or their habitat. For questions about the photo contest, please contact Outreach Coordinator Jason Zarnowski at jason@delawarehighlands.org or 570-226-3164 ext. 6.

The winning 15 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, beginning with a reception on April 21st from 6pm-9pm and on display until May 7th. The ARTery is a cooperative owned and operated by successful and emerging artists and artisans from the Tri-State area.

The winning photos will be exhibited with the ARTery member artists’ own interpretations of eagles, raptors, and other species of birds. During the opening reception, members of the Conservancy will present a short background on the organization and eagles in the region.

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy works with landowners and communities to protect the natural heritage and quality of life of the Upper Delaware River region. For more information, please call 570-226-3164, 845-583-1010, or send an email to info@delawarehighlands.org.
