XENIA — Capturing a unique aspect of a tree will be the goal of those entering the City of Xenia Tree Committee Spring Photography Contest.
Photographs of a tree within the city limits of Xenia will be eligible with the winning photograph chosen by a panel of judges. The winning photograph will be featured in the Xenia Daily Gazette as well as within the lobby of the City of Xenia Municipal Building during the month of July and featured on the city’s website and Facebook site.
Photographers will be challenged to capture unique aspects of a tree, which may include unique bark, structure, spring flowers, leaf or anything that make the tree artistically special.
Digital photographs may be submitted electronically to Michelle Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries must be received by July 1.
Each photo entry must include a photo release form, photographer’s name, daytime telephone number and location of tree within the city limits of Xenia. One photograph per email entry is required but each photographer can submit up to five photographs.
Only amateur photographers are permitted to enter and photographs must be taken between March 1 and June 1.
Photographs will be judged by a panel of photographers based on clarity of photograph, composition of photograph, emotional impact of image and quality of subject.
Complete rules and regulations can be found by visiting www.ci.xenia.oh.us under the Tree Committee link. Search for “Tree Committee.” For more information, call the City of Xenia at 937-376-7235.
