Delaware Highlands Conservancy Announces 2021 Upper Delaware River Photo Contest

On May 5, the
Delaware Highlands Conservancy announced the 4th annual juried Upper Delaware River Photography Contest.  Entries will be accepted from August 2 to 31.

With the theme-- Confluence: Land, Water, Wildlife-- the Conservancy invites photographers to capture striking nature photos in five categories: landscape, wildlife, macro, water, and a youth category for photographers under age 18. 

Without disturbing or harming any creature or its habitat, photographers are encouraged to be creative in showcasing the diverse wildlife, plants, and special places of our region.

Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, composition, clarity and quality, and impact, and must be taken in the Upper Delaware River region to be eligible. Photos may be taken during any season.

The winning photos will be chosen by a panel of judges, along with one People’s Choice, and will be hung at the ARTery gallery in Milford, Pike County, in November. 

The ARTery is a cooperative owned and operated by successful and emerging artists and artisans from the Tri-State area. 

Photo contest judges are Nancy Kiesendahl Bloch, Mary Sue Sweeney Price, Marie Liu, and Stephen Geldman.

Photographers are invited to submit no more than two photos to the contest. Entrants must agree to the Official Rules and submit a $10 entry fee to be eligible; youth entries are free.
