Fall in to Winter Photo Contest
Fall in Maine…there’s nothing like it! The same is true for winter. We are again celebrating two of Maine’s spectacular seasons with our second annual Fall in to Winter photo contest.
Fall and winter photos graphicWe want to see—and possibly award a prize to—your fall and winter photos of our beautiful state. Maybe you’ve got leaf-peeping photos from an autumn hike in the Moosehead region. Or perhaps you’ve got images of Western Maine buried in a beautiful blanket of snow.
This year, we’ve added new categories. We want to see your LANDSCAPE fall and winter photos (also your wildlife pics, see below), but we also want to see photos of PEOPLE outside enjoying fall and winter activities like hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, sledding, and more. No selfies, just you and your friends and family enjoying themselves in the natural setting of Maine’s great outdoors.
The four categories are:
Fall landscape/scenic (with or without wildlife)
Winter landscape/scenic (with or without wildlife)
Fall outdoor recreation (people doing activities outdoors)
Winter outdoor recreation (people doing activities outdoors)
And in case you’re wondering whether to snap horizontal or vertical, the answer is: BOTH! Providing your entries in both landscape and portrait allows the most flexibility and counts as a single entry, and while providing them in both formats or either one won’t affect your chances of winning, it WILL improve the chances of your work making it into one of our publications, maybe even our wildly popular Nature of Maine wall calendar!
Before you submit your entries, be sure to read all the details below. We cannot accept photos that do not meet the specifications. Submit your fall and winter pictures to us at [email protected] Please also tell us your town of residence as we like to include that when we share photographers’ photos on our website.
There’s even more fun: We’ll post them on Facebook for voting! The winners will receive some pretty awesome prizes from local Maine businesses as well as NRCM swag!
Don’t worry if you don’t win, though. There’s a good possibility that we’ll use your image submission, with credit to you, in a future publication, social media post, or elsewhere
