Calling all photographers! The Westmoreland County Parks & Recreation Citizens Advisory Board is sponsoring an amateur Photography Contest for the month of August!  Submit your best photos taken in a County-owned park or trail in the following categories: People, Plants & Animals (Nature), or Places & Landscapes. 

The top two finalists from each category will receive a cash prize and an invitation to the Green Luncheon awards ceremony on September 21 at Twin Lakes Park.

Photographs will be judged based on the following: Impact/Wow Factor, Creativity, Style/Technique, Image Quality, Uniqueness, and Composition (60 points total).

Photographs must be taken in a Westmoreland County Park or Trail. Any photos taken in other local parks are not eligible.  Photographs can be taken in any season and from any year.

This contest is open to amateur photographers only, meaning someone who does not engage in photography as their sole profession.

You may submit a maximum of ten (10) of images for the contest, but be aware you may only win in one category.

All photos become property of Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation and can be used for any promotional purpose.
