Winning Photos & Judging Process
Winning photos will be featured in the annual wall calendar and on Champaign County Forest Preserve District social media accounts. Each winning photographer will receive 10 copies of the calendar as well as a Forest Preserves prize package.
Champaign County Forest Preserve District uses blind judging to select the contest winners. This means judges do not know the names of the photographers when deciding winning images. Champaign County Forest Preserve District shall determine winner eligibility in its sole and absolute discretion. All decisions made by the judging panel are final.
Champaign County Forest Preserve District judging panel will select the contest winners and runners-up. Fourteen winners will be chosen by the panel:
- 1 calendar cover photo
- 12 featured month photos
- 1 calendar back cover photo
The panel will also select up to 24 runner-up photos that may be featured in The Leaflet newsletter, on CCFPD social media accounts, and on the CCFPD website.
Please note: Winning photos may be cropped to fit the format of the calendar, and other variations may occur during duplication.
