Photography Contest

BRACA and its Tree Committee would like to thank all who participated in the past Fall Foliage Photography Contests. This year's contest will be a Spring Photo Contest!

Capturing a unique aspect of a tree will be the goal of those entering the City of Xenia’s Tree Committee Spring Photography Contest. Photographs of the most beautiful tree within the city limits of Xenia will be eligible with the winning photograph chosen by a panel of judges. The winning photograph will be featured in the Xenia Daily Gazette, on display in the lobby of the City of Xenia Administration Building and showcased on the City's Facebook page, government channel, and this website.
