This contest is limited to 70 photographers, and registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis. The cost is $50 due at the time of registration. All proceeds go to the Friends of the Hocking Hills State Park. Expert judges will choose winners from the following categories: Landscape, People, Flora and Fauna, and a Wild Card. There will be an amateur and professional photographer division. Each photographer can submit a total of 3 photos and choose which category or categories they wish to submit. Light editing will be permitted, and files must be submitted via JPEG. Rules and guidelines will be posted soon.
