The December 2019 issue of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine will include the 2020 Friends of Wisconsin State Parks calendar.

MADISON, Wis. - There is still time for people who love to take photos and love Wisconsin State Park System properties to enter their favorite photographs in a contest to be included in the 2020 Friends of Wisconsin State Parks Calendar. The deadline for all submissions is Sept. 3, 2019.

In addition to being available for purchase, the calendar will be distributed to more than 80,000 subscribers of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine in the 2019 winter issue.

"There are so many opportunities to enjoy the Wisconsin state parks during all four seasons," said Patty Loosen, state coordinator for FWSP. "We are looking for photo entries that include beautiful scenery along with people recreating and enjoying activities like hiking, picnicking, cross-country skiing, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, biking and exploring."

Submissions are only accepted from amateur photographers ages 14 and over. Professional photographers who earn more than half of their income taking pictures are not eligible. Employees of the DNR and board members of the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks and their immediate family members are not eligible to win. Photographs must have been shot within the past three years (since Jan. 1, 2017) and taken in a Wisconsin state park, forest, trail or recreation area. Only horizontal photos are accepted and no more than four photos may be entered.

A panel of Friends of Wisconsin State Parks board members and staff will review accepted entries and select the winning photos. The 2019 Photo Contest Award winners will be announced in October 2019.

More information and details on entering and contest rules are available on the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks website by clicking on the tab for "photo contest."
