The deadline for the Environmental Planning and Land Management Institute at Frostburg State University’s Environmental Photography Contest is 4 p.m. April 11. This is the fifth year the Institute, a joint venture between FSU’s Department of Geography and the Maryland Bureau of Mines, Maryland Department of the Environment, has sponsored the competition.
Any amateur photographer 11 years old or older who lives, works or attends school in either Allegany or Garrett Counties may enter the competition. Images should depict scenes of Allegany or Garrett county that reflect the environmental beauty that defines Western Maryland. Photographs should be 8 by 10 inches and matted, and can be in black and white or color.
Entry forms may be obtained from the FSU Department of Geography/Bureau of Mines lab or online at www.Frostburg.edu/Dept/Geog/Einstitute. Participants are limited to three submissions. The deadline for submissions is April 11. There will be three place winners and an honorable mention award, as well as an award for “the people’s choice,” which allows the public to vote either in person or online for their favorite photography from the 20 finalists.
