Photo contest at refuge begins

Entries are still being accepted for the National Wildlife Refuge Week photo contest at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge.

The subject of the contest is “Photos of Muscatatuck,” and any picture taken by a noncommercial photographer at the refuge is eligible.

There are both student and adult categories for the entries. Prints must be at least 5-by-7-inches in size and mounted on a stiff backing (no frames or wires) with no significant alterations. Other rules apply, and an official entry form should be secured to the back of the entry.

Two entries are allowed per photographer. The entry deadline is 4 p.m. Oct. 12. Entries will be displayed in the refuge visitor center until the end of November.

The best of show winning entry also will be reproduced in the refuge newsletter.

For a list of rules or an entry form, email muscatatuck@fws.gov or stop by the refuge office or visitor center, 12985 U.S. 50 East, Seymour.
