The Lookout: Celebrate German-style at this weekend’s Oktoberfest

(Continued)

Matted prints are being accepted through Oct. 4 in two themed categories: wildlife and landscapes/seascapes. Entries will also be judged in two age categories: adult and youth (under age 18).

To qualify, pictures must have been taken within the boundaries of one of the following refuges: Parker River, Great Bay, Wapack, Thacher Island, Rachel Carson, Great Meadows, Assabet River, Monomoy or Oxbow. Photographers can submit two prints, which must be no bigger than 8 inches by 10 inches. The application fee is $5.

The panel of judges will comprise refuge staff and experienced photographers, and winners will be announced during the annual Phabulous Photo Weekend, Oct. 18-20.

Hunt’s Photo will provide a $100 gift card to the “Best in Show” and a $50 gift card to the first-place winner in each category. The winning photos will be displayed in the refuge visitor center for the next year.
