Deadline approaching to enter Mountains of the Land photo contest


NORTH VALLEY – All entries for the Desert Foothills Land Trust Mountains of the Land photo contest need to be in by Friday, Nov. 6. Entries should feature Black Mountain or Daisy Mountain.

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 the Desert Foothills communities.

This year, the contest is entirely online. Photo contest entries will be accepted only by upload onto the contest Web site: 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 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 the DFLT Web site and in media releases. 

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

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