DFLT announcing 2015 Mountains of the Land Trust Photo Contest

NORTH VALLEY – Desert Foothills Land Trust is once again hosting the 2015 Mountains of the Land Trust Photo Contest. Share your favorite shots of Black Mountain or Daisy Mountain to help the Land Trust inspire the protection of the landscapes you love. The photo contest is intended to encourage a deeper appreciation for the unique characteristics of Black Mountain and Daisy Mountain – the landmarks at the heart of our Desert Foothills communities. Photos can be taken any time but should feature Black Mountain or Daisy Mountain in some way. 

This year, the contest is entirely online. Photo contest entries will be accepted only by upload onto the contest Web site, www.dflt.org/#!photo-contest/c18ip. Photo entries must be accompanied by a description of where the shot was taken and an acceptance of the rules and photo release terms. The deadline to enter is Nov. 6, at 4 p.m. Additional details and the entry and release forms are available on the Land Trust’s Web site.

Two grand-prize winners will be chosen: one selected by a panel of professional photographers, and one based on the top vote recipients in our online voting. Second- and third-place winners will be chosen by the same process. The grand prizes are a glider ride donated by Dane Palermo of Overflow Pool Repair, and a Lake Pleasant daily sightseeing cruise for two, donated by Lake Pleasant Cruises. All placed winners will receive prizes and the winning photos will be displayed on our Web site and in media releases. 

Online voting will begin on or before Nov. 13 and end at 4 p.m., Friday, Dec. 11.

By calling attention to the beauty and majesty of Black Mountain and Daisy Mountain, Desert Foothills Land Trust hopes to inspire support for local land conservation, and to connect people to the incredible landscapes right here in our communities.
