People have been asking, "How do I enter this Explore Chatham Photography Contest I heard about? What are the rules? What subjects are acceptable? What's the deadline for submittals?"
Well, all the information you need to know about the contest, the rules, the entry form and waiver document are now available at the Chatham Borough Municipal Building and on the Chatham Borough web site, www.ChathamBorough.org
. In short, there are both Youth (8-17) and Adult (18 and above) divisions, and four categories - plants, animals, landscapes and historic. The contest is open to residents and non-residents. All photos must be taken outdoors in Chatham Borough sometime in 2012 or 2013. And the deadline for submittals is October 26th, 2013.
Several individuals and families have already indicated their interest and have been looking through their recent photographs or heading out into the woods and trails around town to snap some new ones. With so many of the woodland plants starting to emerge or flower, animals coming out of their winter hibernation with newborns, and birds nesting or migrating through the area, now is a great time to be outside in Chatham Borough; and don't forget your camera. You might take one of the winning shots.
