Audubon Amateur Photo Contest Opens Mid-July

The Massabesic Audubon Center in Auburn will be hosting their fourth annual Wild NH Amateur Photo Contest. Up to three amateur photographs will be accepted between July 15 and August 16, 2011.

Submitted photos will be judged in two age groups, Youth (under 17) and Adult (over 17) and three categories: wildlife, wild plants and land- or water-scapes. Winning photographs will be on display in the Massabesic Audubon Center from September 10 through December 4, 2011.

As with past years, the wining images will be donated to a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting the Audubon Center. Bidding for the images will begin September 9 and will end at 4 PM on December 4, 2011. Those who attend the gala will be able to take home their winning bids that day.
