Amateur photographers wanted for Land Conservancy contest

WOODSTOCK – Amateur photographers have a chance to turn their photos into money during a contest through The Land Conservancy of McHenry County.

TLC is putting on a photo contest to showcase the work the non-profit has done across the county. First, second and third place will receive $100, $75, and $50, respectively. Honorable mention and the "People's Choice" winners will receive $25.

This is the sixth year the organization has put on its "Art of the Land" photo contest.

Participants are matched with specific TLC sites across the county.

TLC has preserved nearly 2,100 acres of McHenry County land, working with more than 100 landowners, according to a news release from the organization. Properties range in size from less than an acre to 250 acres.

Submitted photographs will face judgment by a panel that will include local artists and photographers.

Winning photos will be shown at the 2014 Art of the Land Benefit, held at the Starline Gallery in Harvard Sept. 19 and 20. They will also be posted on the organization's website and might be used in TLC publications in the future.

Full rules and registration information is available at TLC's website, www.conservemc.org, by clicking the photo icon at the bottom of the page.
