9th Annual SAC Cemetery Photo Contest
Get your cameras clicking! The 9th Annual Cemetery Photo Contest is underway. Send in your favorite photos of statues, flora and fauna, headstones, and scenic shots from Austin’s five city cemeteries (taken at any time, not just in the last year). Austin’s five city cemeteries include Austin Memorial Park, Evergreen, Oakwood, Oakwood Annex, and Plummers.
Deadline: Entries sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will be accepted through August 31 at midnight. Please see the contest rules and entry form.
In early September, the photo entries will be uploaded to this website where you will then have a chance to vote for your top 12 favorites. The 12 photos with the most votes by the end of September will earn places in the 2019 SAC calendar. The winning photographers will win a one-year membership to SAC. The first place photo earns the 2019 Calendar cover which will be available later for purchase in the Fall.
Previous Results: The overall 2017 winner was Charles Freeman with his shot of Oakwood "Rainy Day" shown on the 2018 Calendar. Other 2017 photo contest winners whose photos were included in the inside of the beautiful 2018 calendar were: Angela Doetsch, Charles Freeman, Eva Mohrlok, Hal Mohrlok, Janice Jenkins, Khanh Le, Beth Pickett, and Harrison Saunders
