2014 Wildlife Weekend Photography Contest and Show

Friends will again be sponsoring our annual amateur photography contest and show in conjunction with the Wildlife Weekend celebration at the Park.  Amateur photographers of all ages, including children and teens, are encouraged to participate. Eligible photographs must be taken at Steele Creek Park in Bristol, Tennessee and 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 and/or experienced amateur photographers from the Bristol area will serve on the panel of judges. All entries will be displayed at the Wildlife Weekend celebration, scheduled for October 10 – 11 at the Park.  This annual event features a variety of speakers, interpretive walks, and other activities relating to the natural history of the park and the region.

The Wildlife Weekend Photography Contest and Show is always a popular part of Wildlife Weekend.  This is a great opportunity for us to promote the beauty and diversity of our park though 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.
