Fall 2020 Klamath Lake Land Trust Photo Contest
Accepting any entries of images taken in the last 5 years through October 31st, 2020
The Klamath Lake Land Trust (KLLT) is sponsoring a photo contest and winning images will be featured on our website, www.klamathlakelandtrust.org and published in a 2021 calendar. Images should include nature, plants, trees, flowers, water, fish, wildlife, birds or any other nature based scenery (ok to include people!) that was found in the general area of the Klamath Basin and photographed during the last 5 years, through October 31st, 2020. We encourage anyone with a nature photo – amateur or professional – to enter.
Images must feature plants, wildlife, or scenery that are native to the Klamath Basin. Photos should not be digitally manipulated in order to change the nature of the composition. Minor adjustments such as cropping, adjusting exposure, shadows or highlights or sharpening the image are acceptable.
Images will be judged based on their composition, artistic merit, technical quality, depiction of their subject matter, and overall impact. A panel of judges appointed by the Klamath Lake Land Trust will review the photos based on those criteria. All decisions of the judges are final. Winners will be announced and on display at www.klamathlakelantrust.org and Klamath_Lake_Land_Trust@Facebook.com by November 6, 2020.
