The Lehigh Gap Nature Center (LGNC), a non-profit conservation organization located just north of Slatington, PA, at the foot of the Kittatinny Ridge is hosting its inaugural Nature in Photographs Show at the Nature Center’s Osprey House from March 21 to April 5, 2014.
Amateur nature photographers from throughout the region are encouraged to participate. The photographs may be from anywhere on the planet, but must be actual photographs, not computer generated images or collages. There will be three categories: Wildlife, Scenic, and Macro. Wildlife includes both plants and animals of any kind.
Last summer, LGNC hosted its first Nature in Art Show and it was successful. Several photographers asked to submit photographic works to that exhibition, but the art show jurors decided to host a separate photography show.
Photographers are encouraged to submit up to three photographs of nature to be exhibited at the Center for two weeks in early spring. Two jurors will screen the entries and select up to 50 photographs to display in the show. Judges will select the best photographs in the three categories. In addition to judging of the best photographs in each category, all visitors to the show will be asked to participate by voting for their favorite image for a People’s Choice Award.
All entries must be submitted to the jurors as JPEG files, 2MB or less. Files should be submitted by February 28 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries that are accepted into the exhibition should be printed from the full quality file and mounted according to the photographers wishes, but must be ready to hang from display panels, either with wire or Velcro. Sales of photographs by the photographers at the show are encouraged. A $5 entry fee for each photograph is required when the photograph is presented for the exhibition.
