The Environmental Planning and Land Management Institute at FSU, a cooperative effort of the FSU Department of Geography and the Maryland Bureau of Mines, invites amateur photographers to submit photographs to its fourth annual Environmental Photography Contest.
Matthew Goldman, left, featured with Sen. George Edwards, won first place in FSU’s Environmental Photography Contest last year. The Environmental Planning and Land Management Institute is now accepting entries for this year’s contest.
The competition is open to any amateur photographer over 11 years old who lives, works or attends school in either Allegany or Garrett counties. Images should depict environmental or natural habitat scenes of Allegany or Garrett county that reflect the natural environment that defines Western Maryland. Each photograph should be 8 by 10 inches and matted.
Please submit entries to the Department of Geography (Gunter Hall, room 201) of the Maryland Bureau of Mines Lab (Dunkle Hall room 307). Participants may submit no more than three photographs. The deadline for submitting entries is April 6, with an April 19 awards ceremony in Compton Science Center. Numerous prizes, cash and certificates will be awarded. Contest winners won over $1,600 in cash, prizes and gift certificates last year.
