The NSH is pleased to announce its Photo Contest 2020 .
Submit photos from past trips at home and abroad before Oct 31 2020. A professional photographer, Chris Barton, will judge the entries. Members can submit a photo in five different categories for a total of five submissions. At the November AGM there will be a slide show of the best submissions, and prizes for the winners.
Here are the rules. And here are instructions on how to submit a photo.
At this year's AGM, which took place last Thursday, November 5, the attendance voted for the best pictures entered in the Club's Photo Contest. The contest ran for 5 months starting in June and was open to all club members submitting pictures taken on recent club trips. The winners are:
Bill Myrtle for "Grizzly Yearling", taken at Paradise Valley, Lake Louise area - ANIMALS category
Bengul Kurtar for "Snack Time", taken at Hat Mountain Lookout - PEOPLE category
Patricia Morris for "Fungus", taken at Hanes Valley - PLANTS category
Yvonne Price for "Larches in the Mist" and Bill Myrtle for "Into the Cloud", both taken at Mt. Frosty - SCENERY category
The winners will receive $100 each (the tied winners will split the prize) and their photos will be featured on our Facebook. All participants to the contest will be recognized at our club's Christmas party on December 10, when a slide show will be run to showcase all the pictures entered in the contest.
Based on the enthusiasm that the photo contest created in the club we will consider running it again next year. For this year's contest we had 12 participants and hopefully next year we will have even more. Check our website for future announcements and keep taking those cameras on the club's hikes.
