You don’t have to be a professional photographer to take an awesome picture. Entries in Eaton Conservation District’s 18th annual photo contest are proof positive! The contest was open to anyone who does not take pictures for profit as long as the picture was taken in beautiful Eaton County. Photos entered in the contest were divided into four categories. This year’s categories included: plants and landscapes, wildlife, people enjoying nature, and agriculture. Participants were able to enter one photograph per category, a wide variety of photos were submitted by an equally diverse contestant pool.
Gary Mankey of Lansing came away as grand prize winner in this year’s contest with his picture of a frog in a leather boot. Submitted photos may be displayed on the District’s website, used in promotional brochures and fliers or displayed at District events.
Winners were as follows:
Plants and Landscapes
People Enjoying Nature
Rachel Drury, Rod Weaver, Rachel Beland, Beverly Davids
Thanks to everyone who entered the 18th annual photo contest. It’s not too early to begin snapping photos for next year’s contest. We appreciate your participation in the photo contest and are looking forward to seeing future photos taken in our County.
