FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Winners Announced in Wild Rivers Land Trust Photo Contest
January 19, 2021 Port Orford, Oregon
The winning results of Wild Rivers Land Trust’s inaugural photo contest are in and we are excited to share them on our website: https://www.wildriverslandtrust.org/photo-contest.html This new event was designed to help share the natural abundance of wildlife on private lands along the southern Oregon coast. The 2020 Wild Rivers Land Trust Outdoor Photography Contest paired regional private landowners with wildlife photographers for a friendly competition showcasing water, land, wildlife and plants found on the Oregon South Coast. The contest teamed each photographer with a landowner who competed with other teams to photograph a diversity of wildlife, plants and scenery.
This is the first of its kind on the Oregon Coast with plans to expand the event in 2021. In 2020, the prize purse was $3,500 for the winning teams, over 7 categories, split evenly between the landowner and the photographer on the team. It is modeled after a successful long running event in Texas
An online event awards ceremony will take place on February 4, 2021 via Zoom or go to our website: https://www.wildriverslandtrust.org. We invite you to choose your favorites at People’s Choice Awards - results will be announced at the virtual event.
Many thanks to our current sponsors: Wild Rivers Coast Alliance and Travel Southern Oregon Coast. Sponsorships will be available for our next contest and include opportunities to display and or purchase winning images and help us expand the event and its positive impact in the future.
