Lewisburg, PA – Grab your phone or your camera and hit us with your best shot in the 10th Annual Susquehanna Greenway Photo Contest: Treasured Towns and Landscapes of the Susquehanna.

This free-to-enter photo contest offers individuals of all ages and ability levels the opportunity to go outside, explore, and capture—via photography—the many landscapes, resources, and towns along the Susquehanna Greenway.

Cash Prizes will be awarded to the first through third place winners within each category: River Towns, Landscapes, Susquehanna Adventures, and Wildlife. Winning images will also be printed, framed, and added to a traveling gallery to be exhibited throughout the Susquehanna region within Pennsylvania.

“SGP seeks to inspire and celebrate the connections that are shared between our communities and the Susquehanna River,” says SGP Executive Director Corey Ellison. “Our annual photo contest provides one way of fostering this connection by encouraging people to get out on the Greenway and explore the Susquehanna through a camera lens.”

The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2021. Eligible participants can visit susquehannagreenway.org/photocontest to learn more and submit photographs in one or all four categories. Entries must be submitted electronically through the SGP portal and in accordance with contest guidelines.

SGP also celebrates the winning photos at an annual wine and gallery reception called Susquehanna Scenes and Sips. This year, both the 8th and 9th annual winners will be recognized during Susquehanna Scenes, Sips, and Scales at Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland on Friday, May 7, 6-8 PM. Guests are invited to enjoy a walk through the interactive zoo exhibits, sip wines from three local PA wineries, and view the winning images from the contest’s previous years. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at susquehannagreenway.org/scales.
The Susquehanna Greenway is a corridor of connected trails, parks, river access points, and communities, linking people to the natural and cultural treasures of the Susquehanna River. The mission of the Partnership is to continue to grow the Greenway, inspiring people to engage with the outdoors and transforming communities into places where people want to live, work, and explore.
