The Piedmont Environmental Council is accepting submissions to its annual photo contest. Deadline to submit is Sept. 30.
Professional and amateur photographers are encouraged to submit images in the following categories: beautiful landscapes and streetscapes; native plants and wildlife; and outdoor recreation. Youth can also submit photos in the 17 years old and younger category. The images must be taken within Albemarle, Clarke, Culpeper, Fauquier, Greene, Loudoun, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock counties.
PEC judges will select finalists in each category, and then the public will vote to determine the winners. The finalists will receive a free PEC membership and have their work featured in upcoming online or print PEC publications. The winners of each adult category will receive a $75 gift certificate to a local restaurant, and the youth category winner will receive a $75 iTunes gift card.
