”Photographers of all ages and experience levels are invited to enter the Sandy Springs Conservancy Digital Photo Contest. Whether you are a student shutterbug, an adult hobbyist, or a professional photographer, residents in the State of Georgia are eligible to win prizes with their submitted digital photos of Sandy Springs parks, greenspace, and trails. Two adult-level winners will each earn $500 and one ticket to the Conservancy’s prestigious Thought Leaders Dinner in spring 2018. Two student-level winners will each win $100. The contest offers two themes to inspire entrants with their digital photos: nature and family fun.
Since 2000, the nonprofit Sandy Springs Conservancy has developed innovative partnerships to create, conserve, and connect parks and greenspace in Sandy Springs. From the Morgan Falls Overlook Park, the Abernathy Playable Art Park, and the Lost Corner Preserve to the upcoming city park at City Springs, the parks, greenspaces, and trails championed by the Sandy Springs Conservancy have enhanced the quality of life for city residents and visitors. The Conservancy also organizes family events, trail clean-ups with volunteers, and forums to engage the public about these amazing sites.
Sandy Springs Conservancy Executive Director Melody Harclerode notes, “Now with the Conservancy’s Digital Photo Contest, Georgia residents can explore the parks, greenspace, and trails in Sandy Springs, and can celebrate the natural beauty and the opportunities for family fun at these places with their captivating images.” The deadline for the Sandy Springs Conservancy Digital Photo Contest submissions is December 16th at 11:59 PM."
