From September 1 through November 18, visitors may submit two entries for our Annual Amateur Photography Exhibit, which will be displayed at the Nature Realm and by virtual exhibit. Only two printed photographs will be accepted, and all images must be taken in areas managed by Summit Metro Parks. With each entry, please include your name, address, phone number, email, the location where the image was taken and a title for the image. Where possible, please do not share contact information with other entrants. Entries should not be matted, framed or include watermarks, and should be one of the following sizes: 5"x7", 8"x10" or 11"x14" and printed on photo paper. You may drop off entries at F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm (1828 Smith Rd., Akron) or mail them to 975 Treaty Line Rd., Akron OH 44313, Attn: Amateur Photography Exhibit. Please include with your submission a completed entry form, which may be downloaded from the top of the Programs & Events webpage. Summit Metro Parks is not responsible for any photographs lost or damaged in the mail. Photographs will not be returned. Only after a photo is selected for the exhibit will photographers also be asked to provide a digital copy. Get the form
