2020 Wild Rivers Land Trust Outdoor Photography Contest


2020 Wild Rivers Land Trust Outdoor Photography Contest
September 23, 2020 Port Orford, Oregon
Wild Rivers Land Trust is excited to create a new event that will help share the natural abundance of wildlife stewarded by private landowners along the southern Oregon coast. The 2020 Wild Rivers Land Trust Outdoor Photography Contest pairs local private landowners with wildlife photographers for a friendly competition showcasing the waters, lands, wildlife and plants found on the Oregon South Coast. The contest teams each photographer with a landowner who compete with other teams over a set time period to photograph a diversity of wildlife, plants and scenery. Images are judged by professional individuals and are unknown to the contestants. This is the first of its kind on the Oregon Coast with plans to expand the event in 2021. In 2020, there is a prize purse of $3,500 for the winning teams, split evenly between the landowner and the photographer on the team. It is modeled after a successful long running event in Texas. Registration is now closed for the 2020 event with 7 teams entered. Judging will occur later this fall and awards will be announced in early 2021. An online event revealing the winners will take place in early 2021. All information will be on our website along with a link to join in the festivities. Sponsorships are still available and include opportunities to display and or purchase winning images and help us expand the event and its positive impact in the future. Contact if you are interested.
