Fall Photo Contest

Oct 01, 2012
Submit your best fall nature photo to the Land Trust's October contest!


The Land Trust is launching a Fall Photo Contest during the month of October!
Submit your best, original fall photo that:

  • was taken in Central Oregon (no official boundaries, use your best judgment)
  • features nature and all its beauty in fall

 
Prizes will be awarded for the best Central Oregon fall photo and for the best fall photo of a Land Trust protected land (our favorite Preserves for fall colors: the Metolius Preserve, Indian Ford Meadow Preserve, Camp Polk Meadow Preserve).  Submissions will be featured in Land Trust publications, digital and print.
