12th Annual Shoot The Hills Photography Contest

Experience the Hocking Hills, Ohio's Natural Crown Jewels, and capture the beauty of spring with your camera. The region's largest photography competition invites professional and amateur photographers to this one-of-a-kind event. The digital division is a 24 hour competition with categories for point & shoot and digital SLR.  Winning entries are printed in a Collector's Edition book showcasing the Hocking Hills.

Photo categories are Flora, Wildlife, Human Interest, Landscape and Abstract.  New in 2013; SNAP & APP embraces smartphone photography and encourages participants visiting the competition area to “See it, Shoot it, Send it” via an online app. Photos may be uploaded and voted on by the public from November 1, 2012 through April 20, 2013. Click on the Snap & App logo to visit the site, upload a photo and/or vote.  Three prizes will be awarded in the Snap & App division.  Highlight of the Hills, People’s Choice (online votes) and a Grand Prize. 

SIMPLY CREATIVE opens up the competition to the use of photo editing software to allow artistic creativity.  Photos may have been taken at any time within the competition area. Entries must be received digitally by April 20 at 7:00 pm. Photos will be reviewed by the panel of judges. First, second, third place and honorable mention will be awarded.
