Presenters sought for annual Yellowstone winter photo festival

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Yellowstone National Park calls on photographers to share their spectacular Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem winter photos at the 10th Annual Winter Photo Festival that will be held Thursday, February 28, 2019, at the West Yellowstone Visitor Information Center at 7pm.

The Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River, pictured here from Lookout Point, is 308 feet high making it the tallest waterfall in the park. In winter it is dwarfed by a massive ice cone that forms from the mist released from the falls. (NPS)

All photographers must register by Thursday, February 28 by contacting West District Naturalist Miriam Hornstein at 307-344-2803 or by email.

During the festival, photographers will present their digital images to attendees. Presentations will be limited to either 25 images or five minutes, whichever comes first. To enhance the richness of the images, photographers will narrate their presentations. They are also encouraged to provide tips on their photography techniques. Framed prints are not hung on the wall as part of this event.

While there are no prizes at the festival, photographers will be rewarded with accolades by all who attend.

The event is sponsored by the National Park Service and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center.
