Capturing a unique aspect of a tree will be the goal of those entering the City of Xenia Spring Tree Photography Contest.
Photographs of a 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, as well as within the lobby of the City of Xenia Administration Building, City’s website and Facebook page.
Photographers will be challenged to capture unique aspects of a tree, which may include unique bark, structure or anything that make the tree artistically special. Entries will only be accepted from amateur photographers and must be received by Monday, June 21. Digital photographs may be submitted electronically to Michelle Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org, with subject line 'Spring Interest Tree Photography Contest.'
Each photo entry must include a photo release form, photographer’s name, daytime telephone number and location of tree within the city limits of Xenia. One photograph per email entry is required but each photographer can submit up to five photographs (2mb or less.) Photographs will be judged by a panel of photographers based on clarity of photograph, composition of photograph, emotional impact of image and quality of subject. All photographs will become the property of Xenia and may be used for promotional use by the City of Xenia.
Complete rules and regulations can be found by visiting www.ci.xenia.oh.us under the Tree Committee link.
