Greater Arkansas River Nature Association (GARNA) has announced plans to hold its sixth annual Photo Contest for Upper Arkansas River Valley nature photos, vowing to donate 50 percent of the proceeds to local community foundations for disaster relief efforts.

Photos must be take within the Upper Arkansas River Valley, from Leadville to Canon City. This year’s five categories are:

  • Flora and Fauna in your backyard and beyond
  • Development & Nature, capturing where nature and humans collide
  • Water in all shapes and forms
  • Landscape, a sense of place
  • Winter/Holiday, beauty from the dimmest months

A youth specific entry option for each category will also be featured this year.

The submissions will be used to produce and sell photographic notecards, prints and various products to raise funds for GARNA’s education and conservation work.

The public, as well as an expert panel of professional photographers, will judge the entries. Contestants can enter as many photos as they wish. June 21 is the submission deadline.
