Habitat Conservation themed Photography Contest
Friends of the Environment is launching their second annual photography contest for students and adults in partnership with the US Embassy. This year the contest has a habitat conservation theme. For the purposes of the competition habitat is defined as:
- the natural environment of an organism; place that is natural for the life and growth of an organism: a tropical habitat.
- the place where a person or thing is usually found: Paris is a major habitat of artists.
- a special environment for living in over an extended period, as an underwater research vessel.
Students and Adults (persons who are 18 and older) are challenged to submit a photo, which can be accompanied by a one descriptive sentence, phrase or word that expresses some aspect of the importance of habitat conservation in Abaco.
Contestants may enter one photo per person and must submit their work to Friends of the Environment in a digital format by March 15th, 2013 along with an entry form to be eligible. Entries must be in a standard digital format (JPEG, PNG, GIF).
All entries will be posted on the Friends of the Environment’s facebook page for electronic voting to decide the People’s Choice Award. The top 10 in each category will be forwarded on to a professional panel of judges recruited by the US Embassy who will select the winners. One winner will be selected from the Adult and Student category and will be announced at an event on Earth Day, 2013 where their prize will be awarded. Second and third place will also be selected for each category, and will be part of a traveling exhibit of the photographs throughout The Bahamas, including the US Embassy.
