Announcing the First Annual SCCi Photo and Video Contest!

Break out your camera and get ready! We have a new contest starting that we need your help to make successful. Have great photographs or video of an SCCi property? Now both SCCi members AND non-members have the chance to share their pictures or video footage with the rest of the caving community and beyond. As the SCCi works to expand beyond just the caving community, we have developed a new marketing campaign called Sharing the Secrets. To fit with this new idea, we have 4 different categories of secrets the SCCi works to preserve-Secret Beauty, Secret Adventure, Secret Life, and Secret Water. Photographs and video footage must fit into one of the categories. Images do not have to be of a cave itself, but must be taken on SCCI preserves!

Contest begins January 1, 2015 at 12:00 AM and runs until February 14, 2015 at midnight. All photographs and videos that are sent by mail must be received by February 14, 2015. Winners will be announced at the 2015 Frick’s Open House on February 28 2015. All images will be judged by a panel of judges that include both photographers and non-photographers and both cavers and non-cavers.

There will be 2 groups with 4 categories each:

Photograph Categories:
Secret Beauty
Secret Adventure
Secret Life
Secret Water

Videography Categories:
Secret Beauty
Secret Adventure
Secret Life
Secret Water

There will be a winner in each of the photography categories above. In addition to these categories, there will be a best of show photograph and video selected as the grand prize winners.

We are also excited to announce a People’s Choice contest. All photos will be uploaded to the SCCi Facebook page by category. We then encourage you to invite your friends to Like the SCCi page and vote for your pictures. The photo in each category with the most likes will be the winner of the People’s Choice award.
