Palmetto Bluff Conservancy April Photo Contest
April 1st – April 30th
April Theme: Mushrooms at the Bluff
The Palmetto Bluff Conservancy hosts a monthly photo contest for residents and guests. We want to see what you’ve seen while enjoying your time at the Bluff! Each month will celebrate a different, Conservancy-related theme. All ages and skill levels are welcome! Photos must be submitted to info@pbconservancy.org to participate.

How are the photos judged?
Conservancy educator, Aaron, will review each submission to ensure the photos meet all requirements. Approved entries will be sent to the Conservancy team to be judged in a blind judging.

Prizes: Each month, the 1st place winner will receive a prize from the Conservancy. Our top three participants will also receive raffle tickets (3 tickets for first place, 2 tickets for second place, and 1 ticket for third place) that will go into a pot for the chance to win a pair of Burn Fest tickets. The drawing will occur following the last Brown Bag Lunch of October 2021.

1. Submitting a photo to the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy photo contest gives the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy permission to use the photo for posts, publications, products, and advertising.
Each participant may submit one photo per month related to that month’s theme. The photo does not need to be taken within that month.
2. All images must be taken at Palmetto Bluff.
3. All photos must have complete information attached, including subjects, dates, and locations.
4. Animal and plant photographs must be wild; no captive animals or planted specimens.
5. The animal must be alive, and the photo be taken under natural conditions and in an ethical manner that places the welfare of the subject above the photographer’s desire to obtain an image.
