2020 TLC + Chester County Photo Contest
TLC wants you to get inspired by nature and get creative! Submit your favorite photo of anything outdoors – wildlife, sunsets or sunrises, landscapes, historical buildings, fall foliage, or even other people enjoying or helping the environment.
Submissions must be original but can be taken by any means including film, digital camera, or phone. Photos can be of anywhere in Chester County, though you will receive brownie points for a photo taken on a TLC Preserve.
Photos will be judged in several categories by age and photographer experience: Ages 0 – 20 or Ages 21 – 99, Professional or Amateur. Top submissions will be posted to our Instagram and Facebook and will be voted on by the general public.
1st Place Prize will be announced shortly!
Deadline: November 30, 2020
To Submit: Attach your photo via email and send to email@example.com. Be sure to include your name, age, location of the photo, your level of experience (amateur or photographer), and if you are a TLC member.
If you have any questions, please email Noëlle Raezer or call 610-347-0347.
In February 2020, we held our Habitat Art & Design contest that encouraged kids to draw a bird they felt represented themselves or Pennsylvania!
