PPBT Birding Photo Contest

Open to youth, age 15 and under, and any amateur photographer, with “amateur’ defined as someone who does not earn a living from photography!

Photos must have been taken during the calendar year 2016 and must have been taken at any of the thirty-four (34) official sites on the Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail. We naturally accept photos of birds, but any artistic view of the official site as well. Your pictures must easily identify the site at which you are taking photos. A simple solution is to take a picture of the site signage before and after your subject photos. These will NOT be counted in your ‘5 picture’ submission guidelines.

There is no charge for entering this contest. All photos should be at least 300 dpi and may be submitted on CD or flash drive in the jpg format, or via email to ppbtphotocontest@gmail.com. Each should be accompanied by your name, address, contact information and telephone, all in legible handwriting.

Winning entries will be highlighted in the Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail newsletter, official Facebook page and displayed on our Flickr page as well. By submitting entries, participants grant permission for the Alabama Birding Trails, the Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail, along with any partner organization to publish any/all submissions on printed materials, official websites and to share on social media. The contest begins March 1st and the deadline is 5:00 pm October 31, 2016.

Our contest has two classes: birds & artistic site shots. There are two levels of entry: youth ( 15 & under) & amateur. You may enter up to five (5) photos in each class.

Submit your photos at any time to either ppbtphotocontest@gmail.com or the Goin’ Postal office: Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail c/o Goin’ Postal, 2036 Cherokee Road, Suite 40 Alexander City AL 35010

This contest is a project of the Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail, with thirty-four sites in the counties of Autauga, Chambers, Chilton, Clay, Coosa, Elmore, Lee, Randolph and Tallapoosa.
