HARTFORD — The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is seeking scenic Connecticut photos.
For the second year, DEEP is holding the Discover Outdoor Connecticut Photo Contest. While photographers from any state may participate, all submitted photos must have been taken in Connecticut.
Photographers may enter one photo in each of three categories: wildlife; people enjoying the natural world; and scenic landscapes and flora.
Judges will select first, second and third place winners in each category. There’s a separate youth category.
Entries must be postmarked by Aug. 16. Entry forms can be found on DEEP’s website.
First place winners will have their photograph published in DEEP’s Connecticut Wildlife magazine. Winners will also receive gift cards.
All submitted photos will be displayed Sept. 15 at DEEP’s Discover Outdoor Connecticut day in North Franklin.
