Photo contest: Wildlife encounters

Last chance to submit your photos of wildlife encounters for the Adirondack Explorer’s next “Views of the Park” photo contest. We haven’t received many yet, perhaps because you think we’re looking for an elusive moose or a black bear. Think butterflies, snakes, chipmunks, birds. Deadline is 5 p.m. Monday.

Post your photos to Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #adkexplorerpix.

Explorer staff will choose their favorite photos to be included on the Adirondack Explorer website and highlighted in the bimonthly magazine. If yours is chosen, you’ll receive a free one-year subscription to the Explorer.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a professional. Just get out your phone and snap a pic. Or send one from a previous year.

Plus a People’s Choice

We will post our favorite few photos to Facebook and let readers vote for a “People’s Choice” to be recognized in the magazine.

And thank you to all who sent in photos for the last contest: “views under 4,000 feet.”

    Question… Does AE acknowledge someone when a submission has been entered? I have submitted several photos in the past for a few of these contests when requested, but I’ve never been sure if my photos were ever successfully received or not…like a “Thanks for your entry”, or a “?”, or anything?

    • Justin Farrell says:

      Hmmm, no response. Well I guess that answers my question. Good to know, thanks.

      • Tracy Ormsbee says:

        I sent you an email last night. Can’t answer all personally but will respond to those who ask.

        • Justin Farrell says:

          Sorry, I did not receive your email, must have went to my junk folder. Thank you for replying here where the question was asked.

    Feeling dumb, but I do not know how to post photos. Where should I go, and any special software needed. I post photos all the time , but can’t seem to figure this out. Thanks,

  3. Susan March says:

    Justin, you did better than I did-I could not figure out HOW to submit photos, (but I was given a work around).

  4. Wally says:

    I can’t post photos either. What did you learn, Susan?

    • Susan March says:

      I contacted them and it did not makes sense so they had me email them directly. Thanks for the note-I don’t feel so dumb now!!!! Good Luck.
