The North Carolina Division of Coastal Management’s Coastal Reserve and National Estuarine Research Reserve Program is holding a new online photo contest via Facebook.
Photos submitted by visitors to the state’s 10 coastal reserve sites will be featured on the reserve’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pages/North-Carolina-Coastal-Reserve/251517631574646) from March 15-April 1, 2014 for judging by the reserve’s Facebook community.
Facebook users will be able to “like” their favorite photos in a variety of categories, with the winners determined by the number of “likes” each photo receives by the conclusion of the judging period.
Winning photographs will be recognized in Animal, Plant, Landscape, and Human Connection categories, and the photo receiving the highest total number of “likes” will be designated the overall contest winner. Winning photographs will be featured in the reserve’s upcoming Tidal Flat newsletter.
The photo contest represents a new opportunity for amateur photographers and coastal enthusiasts to share images of the unique resources found along North Carolina’s coasts.
