"Give Us Your Best Shot" Photo Contest Guidelines
The IAPD/IPRA Joint
Editorial Committee invites you to show off your agency and its visual images
with "Give Us Your Best Shot," a photo contest sponsored by the
Illinois Association of Park Districts (IAPD) and the Illinois Park and
Recreation Association (IPRA).
There is a limit of five
(5) entries per category. First Place finishers will receive a framed copy of their photo.
Winning entries will be published in Illinois Parks & Recreation
magazine and displayed as part of a special showcase at the IAPD/IPRA
Conference in Chicago in January. Photographs will be judged on the basis of
exposure, clarity/focus, subject matter relative to category.
Four categories for entry:
- Recreation/People at Play
- Wildlife (deer, birds, butterflies, etc.)
- Nature/Landscapes (flowers, sunsets, lakes, buildings, etc.)
