Entry is free, and contestants can submit up to three photos in four categories: wildlife, plant life, landscapes, and people in nature. Photos must be taken in a MidPeninsula Open Space Preserve that is open to the public.
First-place winners from each category will win a $100 REI gift card, a Midpen gift bag, and be featured in the Open Space Views Fall Newsletter. A single grand winner will be awarded a ride-along with a park ranger for a behind-the-scenes look at the preserves.
The contest opened Mar. 1 and the deadline for submissions is Wednesday, May 31. More information is at openspace.org/contest.
