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 firstname.lastname@example.org. oh.us. 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.
