Celebrate the fall migration as thousands of Sandhill Cranes begin their journey south for the winter. The Festival is held the 3rd weekend of August, and features internationally renowned speakers, artists and guides. Activities and workshops are offered for all ages, which include guided walks, birdwatching, photography, falconry and crane calling.
The Sandhill Crane Festival Committee is looking for submissions of original photos to be used as the primary festival art for the 2022 Tanana Valley Sandhill Crane Festival. The image should be an appropriate image for the Sandhill Crane Festival at Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. The winning photographer will receive a monetary reward.
Once a photo is selected, the winning photographer will maintain copyright of their image. The photographer will allow their image to be used for promotional purposes for the 2022 Tanana Valley Sandhill Crane Festival including but not limited to posters, flyers, merchandise, social media and website use.
If you are interested in submitting an entry, please e-mail a clear picture (image at minimum 600 dpi (dots per inch)) to email@example.com by May 31! Please include your name, email address or phone number, photo date, and photo location. Please DO NOT drop off the original photo in person. For more information call us at (907) 978-8457.
