Could green spaces ever be overexposed? Not according to national non-profit organization Project EverGreen! Now in its second year, Project EverGreen's Photography Contest is seeking the best photos of all types of well-maintained green spaces--lawns, landscapes, trees, gardens, parks, sports fields and golf courses--for publication in its 2008 Because Green Matters Calendar.
"Let's take a look at the big picture - pun intended. We had more than 100 entries in our 2007 Calendar photography contest," said Den Gardner, executive director of Project EverGreen. "We received photos of green spaces from every part of the spectrum, from kids rolling on lawns to golfers enjoying a day on the green. We hope more amateur photographers will enter in 2008 and take advantage of this opportunity to see their work in print."
As Project EverGreen's mission is to promote the environmental, economic and lifestyle benefits of green spaces, each submission will be judged on its exemplification of these characteristics. There is no entry fee or payment necessary to win. Winners will receive a $100 gift certificate to a big box store.The 2008 Because Green Matters Calendar will be sold as a fund-raiser.
