Autumn at Willamalane Photo Contest

SPRINGFIELD, OR - FEBRUARY 10, 2018: Students in a community program class through Willamalane learn photography from a professional photographer teacher in a park setting outdoors.

The Autumn at Willamalane Photo Contest has concluded. Keep an eye out for the photo showcase at Island Park Gallery in April 2019.


Hey, photographers, what’s in your viewfinder?

We invite you to submit your images to Willamalane Park Foundation’s Autumn at Willamalane Photo Contest. Winners will receive cash prizes and be part of a group show at Island Park Gallery — and the winner of the grand prize will have their photo grace the cover of our Fall 2019 Recreation Guide.

We’re seeking photos taken within the district boundaries that fit into four categories:

  1. Dorris Ranch
  2. Nature, Flora and Fauna
  3. Special Events
  4. Sports and Activities

“We recognize that there is a wealth of talent in our local photographer community,” said Christine Johnson, Willamalane Park Foundation secretary. “We want to shine a spotlight on photographers who do a great job capturing autumn at Willamalane, and we can’t wait to see what folks submit.”

Submissions will be accepted from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30. Each category will have a first, second and third place winner. All winners will receive a cash prize and be shown at Island Park Gallery, and the photo that earns the grand prize will be featured on the cover of our recreation guide for next fall.
