DNREC Looking For Photos

DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife announces photo contest seeking great shots of young Delaware hunters

Entries to be accepted now through Dec. 16

DOVER (Oct. 25, 2011) – Have you taken a great photo of a young hunter in action? If so, the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife invites you to enter the Delaware Hunting Photo Contest being held as part of the Division’s celebration of 100 years of fish and wildlife conservation in Delaware. The winning photo will be featured on the cover or inside the 2012-2013 Delaware Hunting and Trapping Guide.

“We are hoping photographers from all over the state will come out for this contest and share some of their best images with us,” said Division of Fish and Wildlife Director David Saveikis. “As we move into a new century of fish and wildlife conservation in Delaware, we’d like to feature the faces of young hunters in our hunting guide – especially since young Delawareans will become leaders of the next generation of Delaware conservationists.”

The contest is open to Delaware residents of all ages, with a maximum of three entries per person. Entries will be accepted now through Friday, Dec. 16. To be eligible, photographs must depict youth participating in hunting activities and must have been taken in Delaware. A judging panel comprised of DNREC staff and professional photographers will be looking for photos that best portray “the promise of the future” as envisioned by the Division’s theme of “Celebrating 100 Years of Fish and Wildlife Conservation: Reflecting on the Past, Moving into the Future.” Judges also will be looking at technical criteria including resolution, clarity and composition.

Entries may be mailed to the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife, Attention: Amanda Belford, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901. All entries must be postmarked or delivered by Friday, Dec. 16, and must include a completed and signed entry form and photo release form.

Photos must be 8 x 10 paper prints, with no frames or mats and no markings or signatures on the front or back. Normal processing of RAW image files, minimal cropping and minor adjustments to color and contrast are acceptable. HDR and focus stacking are permitted as long as manipulation is disclosed upon entry. Nothing should be added to the image or, aside from dust spots, taken away. The entrant must hold all rights to the photograph and must not infringe on the rights of any other person.
