Calling all photographers and nature lovers! The Friends of Caleb Smith Preserve is sponsoring a photography contest now through Jan. 31, 2020.
The community is asked to send in digital photographs that highlight the natural beauty of Caleb Smith State Park Preserve, 581 West Jericho Turnpike, Smithtown.
The contest will be divided into two divisions; Adult: age 18 or older (or out of high school); and Youth: ages 8 to 18 (or still in high school). There will be two first-place prizes of $100 in each division, two second-place prizes of $50 and two third-place prizes of $25. Judging will take place in February 2020.
Contestants must be able to prepare digital files according to specific guidelines, complete a paper entry form, submit the photograph files via email and pay an entry fee of $10 per photograph. Contestants must also have access to a valid email address for communication with contest officials.
A reception honoring the winners and finalists will be held at the park museum in March 2020. Winning photographs and honorable mentions will be printed and displayed.
Copies of the official contest rules, as well as entry forms, are available at the park office. For further information, please contact the park at 631-265-1054 or email the Friends of Caleb Smith at [email protected]
