8th Annual SAC Cemetery Photo Contest
Get your cameras clicking! The 8th Annual Cemetery Photo Contest is underway. Send in your favorite photos of statues, flora and fauna, headstones, and scenic shots from Austin’s five city cemeteries (taken at any time, not just in the last year). Austin’s five city cemeteries include Austin Memorial Park, Evergreen, Oakwood, Oakwood Annex, and Plummers. We received 143 photo entries last year and hope to get even more this year.
Deadline: Entries sent to email@example.com will be accepted through August 31 at midnight. Please see the contest rules and entry form.
In early September, the photo entries will be uploaded to this website where you will then have a chance to vote for your top 12 favorites. The 12 photos with the most votes by the end of September will earn places in the 2018 SAC calendar. The winning photographers will win a one-year membership to SAC. The first place photo earns the 2018 Calendar cover which will be available later for purchase in the Fall.
Previous Results: The overall 2016 winner was Charles Freeman with his shot of Oakwood “In Bloom” shown on the 2017 Calendar. Other 2016 photo contest winners whose photos were included in the 2017 calendar were: Abigail Murray, Amanda Dotson, Harrison Saunders, Richard Gaines, Hal Mohrlok, Sally Baulch, Beth Pickett, and David Hawkins. Also shown are the 2016 calendar cover photo "Benediction" by Katie Cowden and the 2015 calendar cover photo "Raven" from Hal Mohrlok.
