The Forest Preserves of Cook County is holding its second annual public photo contest. The winning photographs will be featured in the 2014 Forest Preserves of Cook County Wall Calendar and in an exhibition in the Cook County building in downtown Chicago and suburban courthouses.

The public will have the opportunity to vote on the top submissions through the Forest Preserves’ Facebook page from October 1 – 15, 2013.  (http://www.facebook.com/fpdcc). Photos from the contest will be featured on the calendar’s cover, and in each of 11 months; the remaining month will feature the winning shot from a Forest Preserves of Cook County staff contest.

 

In addition to being featured in the Forest Preserves’ 2014 calendar and exhibition, the top vote-getters will also receive a “Get Out and Enjoy the Forest Preserves” prize package, including free passes to the Brookfield Zoo, a picnic permit fee waiver, passes to the Forest Preserve aquatics center of their choice, and a naturalist-led guided tour of the Preserve of their choice.

 

Everyone who votes in the contest will also be entered into a drawing to receive the prize package.
