The winning photographs will be featured in the Preserves’ 2014 wall calendar, and in an exhibition in the Cook County building in downtown Chicago and Cook County’s suburban courthouses.

Photos must be taken in a Cook County Forest Preserve and should feature nature scenery and landscapes, close-ups of plants, insects, birds and other wildlife, or people enjoying the outdoors or participating in our recreational offerings.

Photos should be in digital format such as JPEG of TIF and must be a minimum of 3600 x 2700 pixels at 300 dpi. Photos included in the calendar will be horizontal – vertical images will be cropped to fit the page layout.

Public voting on the finalists will take place October 1 -10 on the Forest Preserves’ Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Forest-Preserve-District-of-Cook-County/134757885128)
