Hi all, and here is some very important information about a photo contest that many of you may be interested in entering.  Audubon SC is having another photo contest and there are very nice prizes.  For example the Best of Show winner will get $400!  The contest runs from May 1st 2018 to August 15th 2018 so there is still plenty of time to enter.  

Audubon South Carolina’s “Audubon South Carolina Photo Contest”begins on May 1, 2018, at 12 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), and ends on August 15, 2018, at 11:59:59 p.m. EST (the “Contest Entry Period”). Entry into this Contest constitutes your acceptance of these Official Rules.

Included below are  several links – with the first link (Number 1) speaking briefly of Audubon Photography overall, the 2018 photo contest, the artist of the month and the Photo Pass.   The Photo pass has lots of benefits that I think many of our members will love.

The second link (Number 2) has the rules for the 2018 Audubon Photo Contest. and these rules should be read over carefully from beginning to end before entering. Note that there is an entry fee of $5 per image this year, but there is so much more critical information in the rules.   So please read the rules carefully.
