2021 Photo Contest - Enter Your Best Shots!
Cullinan Park Conservancy (CPC) invites photographers of all levels to submit photos to its annual photo contest. The contest is held in conjunction with the Conservancy’s fifth annual “Picnic for the Park” luncheon to be held on Friday, October 22 at River Pointe Church in Richmond. The deadline for photo contest submission is Friday, September 24 to allow time for judging as the winners will be announced at the luncheon.
“We had 258 amazing entries in the Photo contest in 2020, but we expect to surpass that this year. We’ve had a surge in park visitors as more and more families discover Cullinan. Many people coped with the pandemic by spending more time outdoors, and Cullinan is a fabulous place for nature exploration and photography,” said Cullinan Park Conservancy President Robbin Mallett.
Photographers may submit up to five total photos in the following categories: birds, wildlife, flora (trees, flowers, plants), landscape and photographer’s choice. To encourage young photographers, the Conservancy has an “18 and under” category so youth and teenagers can be judged with their peers.
There is no fee to participate, and winners will receive both bragging rights and prizes. Anyone is eligible to participate, but photographs must be taken at Joseph S. and Lucie H. Cullinan Park, just north of Sugar Land Regional Airport on Highway 6 in Sugar Land. The photos may be taken at any time of year.
