New York State Announces Photo Contest

New York State Parks and Department of Environmental Conservation encourage visitors to capture special memories and the best of the outdoors. The online contest runs for four months–through mid-October–with the winning images to be featured in statewide digital and print campaigns.

“With the challenges of the last two years, New York’s parks have drawn more visitors than ever before who are spending time with friends and family among nature,” said State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid. “We encourage people who’ve captured their special moments and memories in our scenic outdoors to submit their favorite images, and we remind visitors planning new day trips and overnight getaways in our parks and campgrounds this season to share those fun adventures as well.”

A grand prize winner will be selected along with six individual category winners.

The six submission categories are:
Camping Life
Seasonal Spectacular
Action & Adventure
Views & Vistas
Making Memories

Submissions and all additional information regarding contest rules, eligibility and prizes are available at the NY Photo Challenge website.
