Susquehanna’s Traveling Photo Gallery Comes to Capitol
Jun 30, 2011 11:13AM
A traveling gallery of winning photos from Susquehanna Greenway Partnership’s (SGP) first Treasured Towns and Landscapes photo contest will be staged throughout the Susquehanna Greenway corridor throughout the next year. During the month of July, the photo gallery will be displayed at the State Capitol Building East Wing, in Harrisburg.
In 2010, SGP held the first Treasured Towns and Landscapes photo contest to encourage amateur and professional photographers to focus their lenses on places that inspire them. They were asked to create photos that tell the stories of the Susquehanna and celebrate her river towns as places of timeless value, shared memories and experiences that should be treasured.
More than 150 entries were submitted, and winners were chosen based on composition, technical quality and the way the photo related to the Susquehanna Greenway mission of connecting people with Susquehanna’s natural and cultural resources and promoting a sustainable and healthy environment. Prizes were awarded for first through third place in two categories: Treasured Towns and Treasured Landscapes, with an overall grand prize winner.
Nearly 500 miles in length, the Susquehanna Greenway is one of the state’s greatest resources—a corridor of interconnected parks, trails, river access points and conserved areas that links people to the natural and cultural treasures of the Susquehanna River and its West Branch.
