FIRST EVER FOSS PHOTO COMPETITION



FOSS PHOTO COMPETITION – 2014



Although many themes are possible in a much used and appreciated park like ours, the theme we have chosen is one that best portrays Sam Smith Park as a place for people to quietly enjoy nature in any season -

a photograph that would encourage those who do not know the natural beauty of our park (the plants, animals, birds, scenery etc.) to come and visit.


The competition is open to everyone on our mailing list at any skill level (hopefully to become full members soon!) Here’s a link to the FOSS membership form.  Photographs can be ones you have taken at any time.


Send your digital photographs to FOSS email – friendsofsamsmithpark@gmail.com and please don’t send us more than 2 per contributor. Photographs should be in jpeg format and have enough pixilation suitable for an 8 x 10 print. If you want, an embedded caption could be added to the photograph. The deadline for sending photographs is Tuesday, May 13th, 2014.



Photo contributors understand that by emailing their photographs they will be giving FOSS permission to reproduce them for non-commercial purposes like promotion.  All submitted photos will be eventually posted on FOSS’s website as a slideshow for all to enjoy



The current steering committee will judge all entries.  The first and second place winners will be notified by e-mail and the results posted on the website a week before the Spring Bird Festival (Saturday, May 24th).



Prizes will be awarded at the festival at the FOSS booth where the two winning 8x10 prints will be on display.



Enjoy.  Give us your best shot!
