Since this week is the peak of fall foliage and color around the northeast, we’d love to see your stunning pictures! Send us images of trees in full color, festive pumpkins, or anything that’s quintessentially fall! You can enter up to three photos.
This year, we’ll be doing things a little differently. The photo contest will run on three platforms–Facebook, Instagram, and email! You can find us on Facebook at Connecticut Fund for the Environment and on Instagram at CFE.SavetheSound. There will be two categories: professional and amateur, and special fall-themed adventures as the prizes for each!
The contest runs from October 6 to October 15, with voting from October 16 to October 21st!
If you want to check out the best places in Connecticut to find fall foliage, Yankee Foliage has an awesome interactive map with live updates and CT DEEP’s website offers info on the best hikes in the state.
Post your photos on our Connecticut Fund for the Environment Facebook wall or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention in your caption or email where the photo was taken, your full name, and if you’re an amateur or professional photographer. In order to win, you must also like us on Facebook!
Post your photos to Instagram, tag us @CFE.SavetheSound, use #CFEFallFoliage, and use #pro or #am to designate yourself as a professional or an amateur photographer. Please mention in your caption your full name and where the photo was taken. In order to win, you must follow us on Instagram @CFE.SavetheSound!
On October 16th, CFE staff will select a group of finalist photos and REPOST them on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Voting will continue until October 21st. A photo’s likes from Facebook and Instagram will be combined, and winners will be chosen in the professional and amateur categories. ONLY LIKES ON REPOSTED PHOTOS WILL COUNT TOWARD VICTORY! Make sure to share the contest with your friends so they can vote too.
Stay tuned to hear about the exciting “fall adventure” prizes for our winners!
