t’s time to start getting your favorite Steele Creek Park photos ready to submit to the 2017 Photo Contest and Show. As in past years, the event is being held in conjunction with the 20th Annual Wildlife Weekend celebration at the park. Amateur photographers, including children and teens, are encouraged to participate. Photos can be color, black and white, and/or digitally altered. They must also be between 5”x7” and 16”x20” in size and mounted on a firm backing, but not framed. To be eligible, photographs must be taken at Steele Creek Park and should be focused on the natural aspects of the park. Prizes will be awarded based on the general interest, creativity, and technical merits of the photographs. Professional photographers from the Bristol area will serve on the panel of judges. All entries will be displayed during Wildlife Weekend, scheduled for October 13 - 14 at Steele Creek Park.
This is always a popular part of Wildlife Weekend. It’s a great opportunity to demonstrate the beauty and diversity of the park through photography. Most importantly, it’s an opportunity for park-goers of all ages to have fun through the creativity of photography and the wonder of nature.
Eligible photos must be submitted to the Slater Center, 325 McDowell Street, Bristol, TN. The deadline for submitting photographs is 4:00 pm on Friday, September 22, 2017. Complete rules and application forms are available at The Nature Center and at the Bristol Tennessee Parks and Recreation Department at the Slater Center. Forms are also available for downloading at www.friendsofsteelecreek.org.
