SOUTHERN UTAH – Individuals submitting photos for the seventh annual Virgin River Program calendar competition have until Monday, Sept. 1, to upload their images. Images must feature scenes from the Virgin River Basin, which originates north of Zion National Park and flows through southwest Utah before leaving the state.
A panel of judges will determine the images that will be featured in the 2015 calendar. Winners will be announced at the Fall Festival, an annual event coordinated by the Washington County Water Conservancy District, which takes place Monday, Oct. 27, at The Garden, 1851 S. Dixie Drive.
Participants, including both amateur and professional photographers, can submit up to 10 photos. Landscape orientation is preferred. High resolution images are required. Entries can be submitted and additional information can be found here by clicking on the “Virgin River Photo Contest: Guidelines and Information” tab.
Images featured in the calendar will also be on display at the Division of Wildlife Resources Office Washington County Field Office, 451 N. state Route 318 in Hurricane. The grand prize winner will receive an iPod Touch and his/her image will be highlighted on the calendar cover. All photographers will receive photo credit.
The annual calendar is distributed by the Virgin River Program to local elected officials, schools, community leaders and more.
