“Capture the Park” in Washington Crossing Historic Park’s Fall Photo Contest

“Capture the Park” in Washington Crossing Historic Park’s Fall Photo Contest
October 1 - 31, 2015

The Friends of Washington Crossing Park (PA) invite members of the community to enter the “Capture the Park” photo contest during October.

Photos may depict anything at the park—buildings, foliage, animals, people or events—but must be taken between Oct. 1 and 31, 2015. Photos should be emailed as an attachment to and include the photographer’s name and a brief caption. All entries must be received before Nov. 1 and only one photo is allowed per entrant.

An independent panel of judges will select the top 10 photos out of all the entries. These 10 photos will be displayed in the park’s Visitor Center starting in November and also posted on the park’s Facebook page. The photographer whose photo earns the most “likes” on Facebook will win a $50 gift certificate to the Washington Crossing Inn and be named “Best of Show.”

By emailing a photo to the park, entrants give the Friends of Washington Crossing Park consent to repurpose and distribute the photo for promotion purposes.
