Call for White Squirrel Photos – 11th Annual Photography Contest
The Transylvania Community Arts Council is proud to partner with the Heart of Brevard for the White Squirrel Photography Contest as part of the 2015 White Squirrel Festival. It’s finally springtime and all your backyard white critters are scampering about. If you’re able to catch them in some of their high flying acts or their persistent appearance at what you call a bird feeder, now is the time to bring out your cameras. Photo entries must include at least one local white squirrel in the shot.
Submit your entries to the Transylvania Community Arts Council located at 349 S. Caldwell Street Brevard, NC. Photos may be delivered starting April 20 and deadline to enter is May 11. Photos can be delivered Monday thru Friday from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm. Entry forms are available by calling the TC Arts Council at 884-2787 or be emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a $5 entry fee to help generate funds for the prizes. Ribbons and prize money will be awarded for first place ($50), second place ($25), and third place ($10). Honorable Mentions ribbons will also be awarded.
1) No more than 2 photos per person can be submitted.
2) Photo(s) must be taken by the entrant.
3) Photo(s) must be mounted or framed (no larger than 8”x10’ print; frame no larger than 11”x14”).
