The BFEC is honored to host an annual photography contest in which anyone may submit photos of what they find beautiful, unique or even haunting about our Knox County landscape. The result is a collective appreciation of the nature that surrounds us and the complexity of our relationships with it.
Congratulations to our 2015 contest participants! See the contest image gallery below, and download an order form (PDF) for the 2016 photo contest calendar.
All community members are invited to submit their work to the Knox County Nature Photography Contest - novices are welcome! The submission deadline for the 2016 contest is Monday, October 10, 2016. A contest show will be held during the BFEC Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 15.
The contest offers prizes in three divisions: adult, children's (15 & under) and student, which are selected by a juried panel. In addition, Harvest Festival attendees select "People's Choice" winners.
Guidelines for the 2015 contest are below; revised 2016 guidelines will be posted by August 1, 2016.
