Woodland Park Zoo is a photographer’s paradise so take your best shot and enter it for a chance to win the cover of Woodland Park Zoo’s 2011 calendar, hitting member households this November.
Photographers—amateur and professional alike—are invited to submit their best animal photograph taken at Woodland Park Zoo. To enter, upload your photo to http://www.zoo.org/calendar-contest from August 16-30. Zoo judges will select their top 10 choices and open up the final voting to the public.
Voting takes place online from Sept. 7-10, when the finalist photos will be posted to the zoo’s Facebook page. There you can cast votes by clicking a photo’s “Like” button. The photo with the most “Likes” as voted on by zoo fans will win the cover shot and a prize package including a one-year zoo membership for two adults and two children, plus a $50 zoo gift card.
What makes for a winning photo? We’re looking for photographs that showcase the beauty and drama of the animals at the zoo. Think about the composition of your photograph, the clarity of its subject, and the story it tells. For inspiration, take a look at the photos on our blog or the numerous photo albums on our Facebook page.
For full rules and entry instructions, see www.zoo.org/calendar-contest. Good luck!
