Tree-photo contest


Capturing a unique aspect of a tree will be the goal of those entering the city of Xenia Tree Committee Winter Tree Photograph­y Contest.

Photograph­s of a tree within the city limits of Xenia will be eligible, with the winning photograph chosen by a panel of judges. The winning photograph will be featured in the Xenia Daily Gazette as well as within the lobby of the City Administra­tion Building, 107 E. Main St.

Photograph­ers will be challenged to capture unique aspects of a tree, which may include unique bark, structure, leaf or anything that make the tree artistical­ly special.

Digital photograph­s may be submitted electronic­ally to Michelle Johnson at mjohnson@ci.xenia. Entries must be received by April 1, with Winter Interest Tree Photograph­y Contest in the subject line.

Each photo entry must include a photo release form, photograph­er’s name, daytime telephone number and location of tree within the city limits of Xenia. One photograph per email entry is required, but each photograph­er can submit up to five photograph­s.

Only amateur photograph­ers are permitted to enter, and photograph­s must be taken between Dec. 21 and March 21.

Photograph­s will be judged by a panel of photograph­ers based on clarity of photograph, compositio­n of photograph, emotional impact of image and quality of subject.
