Photographs selected for the competition will be exhibited at the Stuart Municipal Building, 101 E. First St., Winston-Salem, during the next Forsyth Creek Week, March 14 – 21, 2015, and will be eligible for cash prizes.
The competition is open to amateur and professional photographers at least 13 years old. Photographs must have been taken within the past three years. Photographs taken on or after Jan. 1, 2012, are eligible. There is no fee for entering.
Sponsors are issuing the Call for Entries now to give photographers more time to plan and photograph their entries.
Entrants may submit for preliminary consideration digital images of up to four photographs that relate to Creek Week and its mission of celebrating and raising awareness of local waterways and their importance.
Images DO NOT have to have been taken in Forsyth County, provided that they relate to Forsyth Creek Week and its mission. However, photographs should convey an appreciation for the types of waterways and water issues that are found in Forsyth County. In this regard, photographs of beaches, oceans and dramatic waterfalls would not be strong entries.
Preliminary images must be submitted by Jan. 25. Photographers will be notified by Jan. 30 if their image has been accepted for the competition. Complete information is posted at www.ForsythCreekWeek.com."
