The Pinelands Preservation Alliance and a volunteer committee composed of professional and amateur photographers will host their annual juried photography exhibit focused on the Pinelands National Reserve. The exhibit will hang in PPA’s newly renovated barn at its headquarters in Southampton from November 4, 2019 to December 14, 2010. The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2019. An opening reception will be held November 9th from 2pm to 4pm.
This year we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Pinelands Protection Act, the landmark state legislation that established the framework for Pinelands protection that we know today. We also celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Pinelands Preservation Alliance, established in July 1989 to protect the natural and historic resources of New Jersey’s Pinelands National Reserve.
Black and white and color images taken within the boundaries of the National Reserve depicting its landscape, flora, wildlife, communities and people will be accepted. Photographers of all skill levels are welcome to apply – over $2,500 in cash prizes will be offered. The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2019. Registration information is available at www.PinelandsPhotoExhibit.org.
