Beauty of Nature Photo Contest entries due soon

For all of you photographers out there, listen up!

The Pioneer Ridge Nature Center is having its 4th annual Beauty of Nature Photo Contest.

There are five different categories: natural landscape, structural landscape, birds and butterflies, wildlife and flowers and foliage.

You must submit an 8x10 matted photo by Sunday Sept. 15 to either Pioneer Ridge or to the Hy-Vee Drug Storeâ??s photo department in Ottumwa.

â??People are always out looking for something that gets them out of the house and is easy to do and photography is one of those things. It doesn't matter your camera. It doesn't matter who you are, you can enter this contest and possibly win a prize,â?? said Annette Wittrock, Pioneer Ridge Nature Center.

Pioneer Ridge has partnered with Hy-Vee Drug Store and the Ottumwa Area Chamber of Commerce to bring you some great prizes including Hy-Vee gift cars and a night in one of the cabins at Pioneer Ridge.
