2017 12 Federa Lands Photo ContestThis is a great opportunity for you to show your work
and win prizes in the process. 

We were told by a park ranger that “no photo from the Chattahoochee park or associated lands has ever won and he would like to see somebody with photo skills take first place for the area”.   Of course you can shoot at other federal lands as noted below, such as the Smokies if you join us on our Fall Smokies photo shoot. Entries have to have been taken between January 1st 2015 and December 31st, this year.  December 31st 2017 is final entry date.
