Cullinan Park Conservancy Announces 2022 Photo Contest

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 sixth annual “Picnic for the Park” luncheon to be held on Friday, October 7 at River Pointe Church in Richmond. The contest opens August 1, and the deadline for entering is Friday, September 16.

“We had a dramatic increase in the number of nature photographers at the park this year beginning in February when up to 40 photographers at a time were out on the pier shooting photos of the Bald Eagles and Ospreys that regularly fish the park’s White Lake. We are excited that so many new people have discovered the beauty of Cullinan and hope to see a lot of great entries in this year’s contest,” said Cullinan Park Conservancy President Robbin Mallett.

Thanks to Photo Contest sponsor Oxbox Advisors, up to 20 entrants will win Cullinan online store credits and one Grand Prize Winner will receive a $200 cash prize plus a full-day outing with acclaimed Houston wildlife photographer and birding guide Greg Lavaty anywhere in the Sugar Land, Houston, Galveston or Brazoria area.

Photographers may submit up to five total photos in the following categories: Osprey/Bald Eagle; All Other Birds; Wildlife; Flora (trees, flowers, plants) and Landscape. 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.
