The third weekend in April signifies the annual "Shoot the Hills" Photography Weekend & Competition in the Hocking Hills State Park. This year it will be held from April 18-20, and hosted at the Hocking Hills Dining Lodge.
The event is an official fundraiser of the Friends of the Hocking Hills State Park, and I am proud that Jividen Photography is one of primary sponsors again this year. The event will give away more than $3,000 in cash and prizes to winners, and profits are used to benefit special photo-friendly projects in the Park.
The event is free and open to the public, but there is a nominal fee to enter any of the competitions: Digital SLR, Digital Point-n-Shoot, Film, and Print Divisions.
There will be special photography programs, hikes, and naturalists programs, in addition to a wide variety of local artists and craftsmen who will be exhibiting, selling and/or demonstrating their talents.
To top off all the fun, they've chosen a funny, exuberant, and talkative Emcee (MC) this year. Shoot the Hills was her brainchild back in 2000, with the first event being hosted in 2001. She is a professional studio photographer, as well as an accomplished nature and wildlife photographer. Did you guess who? Yep, it's me!
I just want to take this time to invite you to "Shoot the Hills" with me this year! For more info, visit www.ShootTheHills.com.
