Updated: I Love #SalemOR Photo Contest

_nik8587I Love Salem Photo Contest

Since Salem is celebrating 40 years as Tree City USA, we are dedicating this year’s photo contest to…

Trees in Salem!

You are invited to submit photos that capture what you love about trees around town.

What is your favorite Salem tree photo?

Is it the autumn colors; dappled sunlight filtered through a tree’s canopy; animal habitat; children climbing a tree; the shade cast by a tree on a hot, summer day; or the spirit of the Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony?

There are so many ways that trees can inspire, and we want you to share that inspiration and beauty with us.

Here are the contest guidelines:

Subject: Trees in Salem, Oregon
Who can enter: Anyone who lives, works, or plays in Salem
Number of entries per participant: 2
Due date: February 28, 2017

  • You can take the tree photo any time of year and from any year, but submissions will only be accepted between December 1, 2016 and February 28, 2017.

  • Photographs must be of the Salem area.
