Salute to Queens Parks photo contest extended

The weather is splendid and so are our borough’s parks. Grab your camera, capture the beauty of any Queens park, and submit an entry to our “A Salute to Queens Parks Photography Contest 2007.”
Amateur photographers are invited to submit photos, prints or digital photos via email or on disc - without any fees or charges - to the Parks & Recreation and The Queens Courier’s photography contest through 5 p.m. on October 8. Winning entries will be announced on October 22 and exhibited at the Queens Museum of Art and the Arsenal Gallery, as well as published in The Queens Courier and in a photo book.
All photos must be taken in a Queens park or playground, at a Parks-operated facility, or a Parks-sponsored event. A panel of experts in photography, art and parks will judge entries in all the categories which include People, Nature/Landscape, and Places/Landmarks.
The contest is open to all age groups. The winning and runner-up entries will be framed and matted for exhibits in both the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park. The photographs will also be published in a special section of The Queens Courier and “A Salute to Queens Parks: A Photo Book.”
