ANNAPOLIS The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced that there are two weeks left to submit photos for the 2006 Maryland Natural Resource Photo Contest. Sponsored by Ritz Camera Centers and Boaters World Marine Centers, entries must be postmarked by Friday, September 8.
Photographers of all ages can participate in a chance to win a share of over $1,000 in prizes and a chance to have their outdoor images published in print and online. Winning entries will be featured in the winter issue of The Maryland Natural Resource magazine and the 2007 DNR calendar.
