Voting underway for Forest Preserves of Cook County’s fourth annual photo contest

Winning photos to be featured in 2016 wall calendar

The Forest Preserves of Cook County (FPCC) is seeking the public’s help in selecting 12 winning photographs to be featured in their 2016 wall calendar.

Photographs were submitted during the fourth annual photo contest, and highlight various habitats such as forest woodlands, wetlands, prairie and savanna as well as the native plant and wildlife that can be seen while exploring the Forest Preserves. Previous winning photographs have showcased the Forest Preserves under a soft blanket of snow, blooming with new life in springtime, and transforming to autumn’s shades of gold and red.

“The annual photo contest allows participants to showcase what they enjoy about the Forest Preserves, and serves as a way of encouraging others to explore the wilderness of Cook County,” said Arnold Randall, general superintendent of the FPCC. “The winning photographs are a sampling of the beauty, fun and exploration opportunities available to residents and visitors alike.”

In addition to the wall calendar, winning photographs will also be featured on the FPCC website, www.fpdcc.com, utilized on social media accounts, and displayed in an exhibit at the Cook County Building in downtown Chicago as well as in various courthouses.

The voting period will remain open until 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9. During the voting period, anyone with a Facebook account can vote for a photo by pressing the “like” button on that photo in the official photo contest gallery, found at https://goo.gl/iqdR41.

The 12 winners of the photo contest will be announced on Friday, Oct. 16. Each winning photographer will receive 10 copies of the wall calendar as well as a Forest Preserves prize package.
