Amateur photographers of all ages can submit photos in the Oak Heritage Conservancy’s seventh annual photo contest in one of each of these categories:

–Barns, crops and livestock;

–Forests, creeks and wetlands;

–Wildlife and wildflowers (or other flora);

–People in nature; and

–Architecture in nature (how architecture and nature have been combined).

Deadline to submit entries is Monday, Oct. 31.

“Our theme this year is Nature’s Magical Moments,” said Jack Sutton, the Conservancy’s executive director. “We’re encouraging Hoosiers to explore the great outdoors in search of unique experiences where nature feels magical.

“Visiting natural areas, parks, preserves and agritourism sites offers endless opportunities to capture that magical moment that creates inspiration,” he said. “We hope area residents will seek out new nature destinations and share their adventures with others.”

Oak Heritage is offering kid-friendly age categories. Kids 18 and younger can enter the youth contest. Folks 19 and older must enter the adult contest.

Entries in each age group will be judged separately with each age group receiving their own “best in show” and grand prize.

Photos will be included in an online and traveling exhibit.

Contestants must submit their photos online.
