Last call for all photographers! There’s only one month remaining till the close of the 8th annual Appalachian Mountain Photography Contest (AMPC).

Appalachian Voices is sponsoring one of the eight categories, called “Our Ecological Footprint,” which will document environmental impacts caused by human activities in Appalachia. There will be a $200 prize for the winning shot in this category.

Each photo costs $6.00 to enter and a portion of the proceeds from the competition are used to subsidize Student Outdoor Learning Expeditions (SOLE) at Appalachian State University. Students participating in SOLE trips spend extended time exploring rugged and remote destinations including New Zealand, Alaska, Fiji and Wales. To date, AMPC has contributed more than $10,000 to students participating in SOLE trips.

This is the final reminder- so don’t miss your chance to win part of $4,000 dollars in cash and prizes. Submissions are due Dec. 17, by 5:00 pm.
