In spring 2016 ASGC held its first annual Photo Contest.
Participation was open to amateur photographers who were legal residents of the Great Lakes States, aged 13 and older. Adult participants donated $15 dollars to the ASGC and were permitted to enter up to three photographs. Youth were permitted to enter three photos with no registration fee required.
Participants uploaded their digital photographs online. Photos submitted by adults were submitted to one of four categories:
- People in Nature
- Fine Art
All youth were grouped into their own category.
First, second, and third prizes (cash and vintage Audubon prints) were awarded for each category and a grand prize (also cash and a vintage Audubon print) was awarded. Winners were announced at the Annual Meeting/Dinner and the winning photos were on display at the event.
