The Delaware Highlands Conservancy recently announced its seventh annual juried photo contest for the Upper Delaware River region, open to professional and amateur photographers.

“Confluence: Land, Water, Wildlife” invites photographers to capture striking nature photos in five categories: landscape, wildlife, macro, water, and the Van Scott Nature Reserve, plus a youth category for photographers under 18. Without disturbing or harming any creature or habitat, photographers are encouraged to be creative in showcasing the diverse wildlife, plants, and special places of the region.

Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, composition, clarity and quality and impact, and must be taken in the Upper Delaware River region. Photos may be taken during any season. Photographers may submit entries via the conservancy’s website from August 1 through 31. The winning photos will be chosen by a panel of judges, along with one people’s choice, and be hung at the ARTery Gallery in Milford in November.

Photographers must submit no more than two photos, agree to the official rules and submit a $15 entry fee. Youth entries are free.
