The Osage Nation ENR Department would like to remind everyone that the First Annual Wildlife Photo Contest is coming to an end. Regardless of when you took your photo, remember to have it submitted by the deadline of 12 a.m. on Dec. 31, 2010. Photos may be emailed, hand-delivered, or mailed to the Osage Nation ENR Department.

The contest is open to amateurs of all ages and photos must be taken of native wildlife on the Osage Reservation. This is an amateur photo contest, so paid professional and studio photographers are asked not to submit entries.

The winner will be announced at Sovereignty Day on March 11, 2011. The winner will receive their photo professionally framed and hung in the Federal Programs building on the Osage Nation Campus for one year, until the Second Annual Photo Contest winner is announced.

For further information regarding the contest or submission of photos, please contact either Darin J. West at (918) 287-5412 or Jann Rose at (918)
