Georgia Nature Photographers Association (GNPA) and our partner, the Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) are pleased to announce a new photography exhibit coming up. Each quarter, the CNC selects a theme for their nature programs. This quarter, the theme is Winter Wonders.
Our theme for the photo exhibit is titled simply “Winter”. Twenty-four (24) images that best evoke the feeling of winter will be selected to be exhibited in the CNC River Resource Gallery in Roswell, Georgia.
The contest is open to members of GNPA. If you are not a member you can join today by going to the GNPA website.
Entering the contest/exhibition: Entry for the contest will be through the GNPA website. Sign-in to the Member home page and look for the announcement and link below your member badge.
There is a $5.00 fee for each entry. Your images do not need to be re-sized for entry. Your photos do not need to be renamed. We recommend formatting your photo as sRGB and jpg.
Photographers with images that have been selected for the exhibition will be notified by November 11, 2020.
While a photographer may enter any number of images that evoke the feeling of winter, but a maximum of two images by any photographer will be selected. Contest winners will need to frame their images at their own cost in solid black frames with acrylic glazing and white mats, details to be provided later. Photos must be delivered to the Chattahoochee Nature Center by 11:00 am on December 3, 2020.
Judging: Images will be reviewed to make sure they fit competition rules. Images will be judged on the basis of overall photographic excellence and how they evoke feelings of winter.
Photographs must meet the following requirements:
1: This Contest/Exhibit is open only to nature photography images. Images of other subjects will be excluded.
2: Images must have been taken in Georgia or contiguous states. There is no restriction on when the photo was taken. The image does not have to have snow or ice but should invoke thoughts of winter – bare trees, winter grasses, frosty grasses or blooms, snow frosted wildlife, etc. No captive or domestic subjects and minimal “hand of man”.
