Press release from the Transylvania Community Arts Council:
The Transylvania Community Arts Council is proud to partner with the Heart of Brevard for the White Squirrel Photography Contest for the 2017 White Squirrel Festival in downtown Brevard, NC. It’s finally springtime and all your backyard white critters are scampering about. If you’re able to catch them in some of their high flying acts or their persistent appearance at what you call a bird feeder, now is the time to bring out your cameras. Photo entries must include at least one local WNC white squirrel in the shot.
Submit your entries to the Transylvania Community Arts Council, located at 349 S. Caldwell Street Brevard, NC. Photos may be delivered starting April 5 and deadline to enter is May 15. Photos can be delivered Monday thru Friday from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Entry forms are available by calling the TC Arts Council at (828)884-2787 or be emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a $5 entry fee, per photo, to help generate funds for the prizes. Ribbons and prize money will be awarded for first place ($50), second place ($25), and third place ($10). Five Honorable Mentions ribbons will also be awarded. Judges will make their determination based on: subject, composition, technique, lighting, creativity, attractiveness, and impact.
1) No more than 2 photos per person can be submitted.
2) Photo(s) must be taken by the entrant.
3) Photo(s) should be mounted or framed for display purposes (no larger than 8”x10’ print; frame no larger than 11”x14”). If printed as 4” x 6” on photo paper, we will tape to the photo to a display board.
