It’s all part of the “Cantigny in Focus” annual photo contest.
Amateur photographers can submit photos taken on the grounds of Cantigny Park or Cantigny Golf Course and share their work with others by entering them into the contest.
Judges chosen by Cantigny will then select 20 images that best represent the scope of Cantigny, including gardens, museums, special events and programs, military events and nature to display in the visitors center.
Those 20 selected will receive a free annual membership to Cantigny Park. Park visitors will then vote for the their favorites – with the top three vote-getters receiving another prize.
Photo entries are due by November 14th, with voting beginning February third.
The Forest Preserve District of Will County is also having some photo fun, but this time the tables are turned.
Their new “Mystery 360 Photo Contest” will test your knowledge of the grounds of the forest preserve.
Every Wednesday in September, the forest preserve will post a 360-degree photo on their Facebook site of a specific location, accompanied with a question.
The first person to correctly identify the photo wins a prize – regardless of their ability to visit the forest preserve.
“Those people who can’t get out to sites whether it be because of some mobility impairment or they’re busy and they just can’t get out, this is a way for them to explore their forest preserve district, too,” said Ralph Schultz, Chief Operating Officer for the Forest Preserve District of Will County.
Participants must be 18 or older and are only allowed one guess per week.
