GRUNDY COUNTY — Area photographers are invited to submit their most picturesque photos of the South Cumberland State Park (SCSP) to the annual Picture the Park photo contest sponsored by the Friends of South Cumberland (FOSC).

Winners will be named in several categories, and the photos will be used on the Friends’ website, in printed literature, in physical products offered in exchange for donations to the Friends, or to sell in order to raise money for projects facilitated for the SCSP.

Categories include moving water, wildflowers in the park, rock climbing, hiking, scenic vistas, and more. For a complete categories list, click here.

“By entering our contest and donating your photos to the Friends, you’ll help us tell the amazing story of the park and receive much-deserved recognition for your photographic talents,” said Friends board member Rick Dreves.

Deadline to submit photos is midnight on Sept. 13. More information, submission requirements and categories are available by clicking here.
