With entries from around the world, Roslyn photographer Alan Sloyer is a Winner in the 2013 Jamestown (New York) Audubon Nature Photography Contest.
“Part of Jamestown Audubon’s mission is to connect people with nature,” said Audubon Program director and contest coordinator, Jennifer Schlick. “The breathtaking quality of some of the 2013 photo contest entries will surely inspire the viewer to make that connection.”
The categories for submissions of photographs were Landscapes, Plants (including trees, fungi, lichens, mosses, etc.), and Wildlife (animals in their natural habitats), with Adult and Youth (18 and under or still in high school) Divisions in each category.
Sloyer’s “Chinese fishing nets – Kochi, India” won the Adult Landscape category.
Prints of the winning photographs will be on display for viewing by visitors to the Saturday, Aug. 31 Monarch Butterfly Festival at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren, PA.
Proceeds from the contest support Audubon’s environmental education programs. The contest is sponsored by Main Street Photo of Bowling Green, OH (www.bgmainstreetphoto.com).
