Oregon Wild Outdoor Photo Contest 2012 Categories
Official categories for the 2012 Oregon Wild Outdoor Photo Contest.
Showcasing the wildlands, wildlife and waters that make Oregon a special place.
Photos must be of federal public lands in Oregon. This includes National Forest and BLM lands (including designated Wilderness and National Scenic areas), National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, National Grasslands, and National Monuments. Images featuring recreation are acceptable and encouraged. Photos from state and local public lands, or private lands, are not eligible.
Photos must be of native Oregon species in their natural habitat. This category includes fish.
Photos must be of pristine, undeveloped waterways in Oregon. This includes rivers, lakes, streams, waterfalls and wetlands. Images featuring recreation are acceptable and encouraged.
Photos must be taken of the wildlands found along the route of the wolf OR-7 (now known as Journey) within Oregon (see map below). Specific focus is given to the following threatened landscapes: the Wallowa Whitman National Forest – at risk from uncontrolled off-highway vehicle use; Newberry National Volcanic Monument – threatened by geothermal development; proposed Crater Lake Wilderness – endangered by several logging sales, climate changes, and a scheme to fly helicopter tours over the Park. See below for more maps and resources on exploring these areas.
