The New Orleans Recreation Development Commission wants your photos of nature from all around the city – and the first place winner will win a new LG 360 CAM Spherical Camera.
The contest, which runs through April 15, is open to everyone. Participants can submit up to three photos taken in Orleans Parish of nature: wildlife, plants, natural landscapes, people enjoying the outdoors, or any photo in which nature is the central theme.
Photo entries will be judged based on creativity, quality, originality, adherence to the theme, and overall impact. Judging will be conducted by a volunteer panel of NORDC staff, excluding Outdoors staff. Judges are provided the photograph and title only, in order to create an unbiased selection.
The first place winner will receive a LG 360 CAM Spherical Camera, which takes
high definition (2K) 360-degree photos and video. The second place winner will receive a $50.00 VISA gift card. The third place winner will receive a $25.00 VISA gift card. Winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22, 2017, and can pick up their prizes at the announcing event or later at NORDC’s administrative offices on Franklin Ave.
The deadline to enter is April 15 at 11:59 p.m. To enter, email all submissions to NORDCOutdoors@nola.gov in JPEG/JPG format. Be sure to include “Photo Contest Entry” in the subject and include the following information in the body:
