Dear Potomac River Enthusiasts:
Calling all photographers! Get your camera ready for ICPRB's 24-hour Earth Day photo contest. Photos that qualify might include birds, wildlife, insects, scenic shots, wild plants, people, Earth Day events, and other Earth Day-related happenings in the Potomac watershed taken on Earth Day, April 22, 2012.
The grand prize winner will receive a one-day river trip for two people through River and Trail Outfitters. Second place will win a Flashpack backpack filled with binoculars, water bottle, and coupon provided by REI, and an upper Potomac map set. Third place will receive a Rain Bear rain barrel and upper Potomac map set.
Here's how it works: The photo(s) you submit can be taken any time between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on April 22, 2012. Go to www.potomacriver.org to register your photo, pay the $10 entry fee, and upload your three best photos. We'll accept entries April 22 through April 29, 2012. Winners will be announced by May 21.
Why only one day? The ICPRB's mission is to enhance, conserve, and protect the Potomac River, its tributaries, and associated land resources. These photos will help us highlight all the terrific places, people, and events on Earth Day that we couldn't see without your help. We hope to develop a database and interactive map for the public using these images.
