MROSD announces photo contest winners
The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District announced the winners of its third annual digital photo contest last month. Three winners were chosen from twenty finalists by District staff based on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit. A record 700 images of the natural world, taken by the public on the District’s 24 open space preserves throughout the Peninsula and South Bay, were submitted for consideration. The only contest rule is that entries must be taken on District land.
The winners will have their entries published in the District’s summer newsletter this week and will be awarded prizes including a whale-watching cruise and Flip UltraHD camcorder. The District is also currently holding a Teen Video Challenge, inviting local ninth through twelfth grade students to submit videos they created on District preserves for a chance to win prizes.
