Paddlers Photo Contest Deadline This Week

There are only three more days until the deadline for submissions to the Adirondack Paddlers Photo Contest.  By this Friday, May 11, photos from pond lilies to loon babies should be on their way to the contest’s Flickr site.  Start the process at Adirondack Explorer.

Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company, View, and the Adirondack Explorer are co-sponsoring the inaugural contest.  The rules are simple: photos have to have been taken in the Adirondack Park and from a canoe or kayak.

Amateurs and pros are encouraged to enter.  The awards include subscriptions to the Explorer, memberships at Old Forge’s new art center, View, a Werner Carbon Skagit Paddle and publication in the Explorer for the Best in Show photo.

The winners will be announced during the Reel Paddling Film Festival at View on Saturday, May 19, at 7 p.m.  The festival showcases the best paddling films of the year and is part of Mountainman’s annual Adirondack Paddlefest.

Mark Bowie, Sue Bibeau, Nancie Battaglia and Clark Lubbs are the judges for the contest.
