Alaska State Parks announce 40th anniversary photo contest

In 1970, the members of the Alaskan legislature had the foresight to create Chilkat, Chugach, Denali, and Kachemak Bay state parks.  Forty years later, these parks are still managed by the state and offer year-round recreational opportunities to Alaskans and it's many visitors. 

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the creation of these parks and of the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation, Alaska State Parks (ASP) is holding a photo contest. 

Six photos will be selected and made into 18" by 24" commemorative posters. ASP expects to print up to 500 copies of each image and distribute them for free throughout the state.

The contest is open to all, including professional photographers, and up to six entries may be submitted per person. 

ASP is looking for high quality images taken of or within any state park managed area. Photos can be of landscapes, historic structures, people, etc. 

Entry forms and contest rules can be downloaded from the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation website.

Deadline for submissions is March 1, 2010.

For more information contact Claire Holland LeClair at 907-269-8696 or at claire.leclair@alaska.gov.

    Love the photo used here. Will look back at the photos I took there a few years ago. They were OK but not as creative as the one in this article.
