2015 Wildlife Weekend Photo Contest and Show

Friends will again be sponsoring an amateur photography contest and show to be held in conjunction with the annual 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 9th and 10th at the Park.

This year’s celebration is of particular interest since the theme will be “Focusing on Nature Photography”. In addition to the usual variety of children’s activities, interpretive walks, and demonstrations, several presentations will cover topics related to nature photography, and there will be opportunities for hands on learning for photographers of all ages and experience.

The Wildlife Weekend Photography Contest and Show is always a popular part of Wildlife Weekend.  Every year the quality and variety of entries seems to increase. 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.
