Capture Nature Photography ContestBy Katie Bakken
The Friends’ Capture Nature Photo Contest was created as a way of inspiring people to engage in the park landscape with creativity in mind! Capture Nature runs from May 1 to July 31 and is a great opportunity for those with a professional background or personal interest in photograpy to lend their experience to a program that brings a great deal of visibility and a lot of joy to our organization! Capture Nature is also an important fundraiser for the Friends, so your volunteer involvement contributes to the long-term sustainability of the Friends and our overarching education and stewardship activities.
Volunteer Jurors work remotely from their own homes as they take on any number of tasks, from coordinating contest registration, organizing photo submissions and taking part in the final adjudication for the winning prizes! While these may not sound like the most exciting of tasks, they are integral to this program, as is your knowledge and experience of elements that combine to make world-class, winning photos! Find out more by reading the Capture Nature Juror Volunteer Job Description.
Volunteer recruitment for Capture Nature Jurors takes place in the spring. To receive more information this opportunity, create a volunteer account on MyVolunteerPage by clicking on the green button below, then check off Capture Nature on your list of Program Interests.
