***Entries for the 2017 contest are now open until noon on Wednesday, November 22nd!
Urban Forestry is offering an opportunity to win a tree, just in time for planting season! Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year here in Edmond, and it's a season when the trees really get to shine! Take a look around as the vibrant fall foliage starts to show, and snap some pictures to enter in the Edmond Tree Awards program's Fall Foliage Photo Contest. See below for more information about the contest rules.
Who may enter?
Anyone may participate in the contest, but winners must reside within Edmond City Limits. If you are not sure whether you live in Edmond (the boundaries can be deceiving), check out this helpful tool.
Photos must be of recent, local fall foliage (outside of Edmond City Limits is okay, but please keep to the Metro area), and entries must include the location of the tree so that the winner may be verified by Urban Forestry staff. Only photos that were taken by the person submitting them as entries will be accepted, with a maximum of three entries.
How does the contest work?
After the entry deadline, photos will be uploaded into a photo album on the Edmond Urban Forestry, Government Facebook page. Followers will be encouraged to "like" their favorite photos within the album. Contest participants can encourage their friends to also vote on (like) their photo - just make sure they are "liking" the one in Urban Forestry's album so it will count as a vote! After the voting deadline, the photographer with the most "likes" will win a tree!
Are you ready? Keep your eyes open for fall foliage!
Entries will be accepted as soon as Edmond's trees start showing color! Get your cameras ready!
