The Friends of the National Wildlife Refuges of R.I. are sponsoring a photo competition and encouraging amateur photographers to enter their favorite wildlife or landscape refuge photos. New or existing 8×10 color photos can be entered in any of the three categories of the 17th annual competition. The categories are refuge wildlife, refuge wildlife habitat/landscape, or refuge flora. There is also a category for children 14 and under in any subject on a refuge.
Each contestant is limited to four entries. The fee to enter is $10 per photo. The deadline is Sept. 6. The photos will be judged by a panel. The opening reception will be held on Sept. 17 at Sachuest Point Visitors Center. For an application and more on the rules, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
