Entries for the 8th annual Erie Canalway Photo Contest are being accepted now through September 6, 2013. Winning photos will be published in the 2014 Erie Canalway calendar.
Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit prints and digital images in four contest categories: Bridges, Buildings and Locks- For the Fun of It- On the Water- and the Nature of the Canal.
The contest hopes to capture and share the beauty, history, people, and distinctive character of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor, which includes the Erie, Oswego, Cayuga/Seneca, and Champlain Canals, and their historic alignments as well as more than 230 canal communities.
Official contest rules and an entry form can be found online.
