Ta-DA! Lake Clark’s “Wilderness Inspirations” Photo Contest.
This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act in which congress created a system of lands preserved in their natural condition for you. ‘Why Wilderness?’ might you ask. In the words of Sir John Lubbock: “Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountains and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.” We’d like to see what Lake Clark’s 2.47 million acres of designated wilderness inspires in you, be that a sense of freedom, adventure, creativity, family, peace or home.
WINNERS WILL RECEIVE:
People’s Choice and Staff Pick grand prize winners
– a 16 by 20 inch stretched canvas copy of your image.
– Featured as Lake Clark’s facebook page cover photo for one month each.
People’s Choice and Staff Pick runners up
– an 8 by 10 inch stretched canvas copy of your image.
The four winning images will be displayed at the Lake Clark Visitor Center in Port Alsworth mid May through August, and then shipped to Homer and Soldotna, AK where they will be displayed with other art pieces in the Voices of the Wilderness art show for the month of October 2014. After the show is complete, the canvas pieces will be shipped to the winners.
