Nature Fest photo contest deadline approaching

By DON TRAVIS

Just a quick reminder that the March 30 entry deadline is just three weeks away for the Nature Photo Contest being held in conjunction with the third annual Milam County Nature Festival set Saturday, April 14 at Fair Park in Rockdale.

There will be three age divisions: 18 and older, 12 through 17 years and under 12 years old. Participants again will have five categories in which to enter, including: People in Nature; Wildlife; Landscape/Scenery; Plants; and Funny Nature Photo. Entries will be judged prior to the festival.

All entries (space permitting) and winning photographs will be on display for public viewing at the nature festival site on April 14. The awards ceremony will be held at 2:15 p.m., after which entrants may pick up their photos.

Contest rules and guidelines, entry forms and information on how to submit photographs can be picked up at the AgriLife Extension Office in Cameron at the corner of 1st Street and Central, 8 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or obtained from the El Camino Real website: http://txmn.org/ elcamino/naturefest/photo-contest/.

Previous year’s entries were spectacular so those of us on the festival committee are really looking forward to seeing what entrants have in store for us this year.
