“Take only pictures, leave only foot prints.” See why we care for Georgia Photo Contest
This year EarthShare of Georgia conducted its first “Take only pictures, leave only footprints” See why we care for Georgia Photo Contest in celebration of our 20th anniversary of caring for the environment.
The contest challenged photographers across Georgia to capture the beauty of the state’s landscapes through photos of wilderness, nature, land preservation or conservation efforts that illustrate the “See why we care for Georgia” message. Thank you to all that participated!
The 1st place prize was a custom framing provided by BlackRabbet Framing Studio. BlackRabbet crafts all frames by hand in Atlanta- assuring the highest quality possible. There to help present the award is Marlowe Hill, owner of BlackRabbet Framing Studio.
1st Place winner was Dorinda G. Dallmeyer for her submission of I “Ichauway-Notchaway Creek” (pronounced Itch-Away Notch-Away) near Newton, Georgia on The Ichauway Plantation. This formerly was the 29,000-acre quail plantation owned by Mr. Robert Woodruff and now is the Joseph Jones Ecological Research Center. Not too far from where the photo was taken, the creek joins the Flint River.
The 2nd place prize was a gift certificate valued at $175 redeemable for either one course at The Showcase School of Photography or currency at The Showcase Photo and Video store.
2nd Place winner was Amy Dinsmore for her submission of the photo entitled “Providence Canyon”. Taking her first photography class at a local college, Amy was in search of beautiful places in Georgia. Amy and her husband ventured out during mid-February, which made for great hiking weather. The greens of the surrounding pines were a nice contrast to the beautiful reds and oranges of the Georgia clay.
