"APG is seeking photographic projects that provide new insight and a better understanding of the American South today. Know South / No South will look at the idea of Southern identity in the 21st century. The American South is recognized as a distinct cultural and geographical region within America. The culinary, musical, and storytelling traditions of the region are unique cultural byproducts that emanated from the deeply rooted structures of class, race, and economics that have existed for generations." - more info on atlantaphotographygroup.org

Whether you are a student shutterbug, an adult hobbyist, or a professional photographer, residents in the State of Georgia are eligible to win prizes with their submitted digital photos of Sandy Springs parks, greenspace, and trails. Two adult-level winners will each earn $500 and one ticket to the Conservancy’s prestigious Thought Leaders Dinner in spring 2018. Two student-level winners will each win $100.

The Conservancy also organizes family events, trail clean-ups with volunteers, and forums to engage the public about these amazing sites.
Sandy Springs Conservancy Executive Director Melody Harclerode notes, “Now with the Conservancy’s Digital Photo Contest, Georgia residents can explore the parks, greenspace, and trails in Sandy Springs, and can celebrate the natural beauty and the opportunities for family fun at these places with their captivating images.” The deadline for the Sandy Springs Conservancy Digital Photo Contest submissions is December 16th at 11:59 PM."
