Hello everyone! It’s been a while but here’s a great local contest with awesome prizes for you to check out: Deadline June 30, 2012
Part of the rules of the contest are that “All photos must have been taken in the confines of Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park, including the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Gardens located at 2400 S, Scenic Ave. Springfield MO.”
Another semi-local contest: “Rural Missouri and Missouri State Parks have teamed up again to bring you the contest, which is open to all amateur photographers. This year’s contest includes five categories for adults and a new category, “Children in Nature,” reserved just for shutterbugs age 12 and younger.”
