Starting Tuesday January 3rd through Thursday January 26th an exhibition of photographs made for the 2011 Friends of Wildwood Photography Competition and the best images taken by the students at the Harrisburg Camera Club sponsored Harrisburg Kids Photography Camp and the Wildwood Kids Photography Camp will be displayed. The images will be on display in the Olewine Nature Center.
Guest jurors Madelaine Gray, fine art photographer, from Mt. Gretna; Denny Bingaman, wildlife photographer and printer and Raymond Gehman, National Geographic photographer both from Waynesboro will be judging the images. Awards will be given in the Friends of Wildwood Photography Contest for First place, Second place and Third place in each category of Advanced, Intermediate, Beginners and Youth (12+under). The Photography For Kids Camp will also be judged and award winners will be picked for Best Of Show, First place, Second place and Third place. The awards will be announced at 1:00 on Sunday January 8th with a reception to follow from 1 PM – 4PM.
I strongly suggest that members of the HCC come out to the awards ceremony Sunday the 8th and see the work that the students in the HCC Kids Camp are doing and to support the program. If you can not make the reception, please make a concerted effort to see the work while it is on display. The Olewine Nature Center is open from 10 AM to 4 PM from Tuesday through Sunday.
