Shell Museum accepts entries for live mollusk photography contest

By Staff | Aug 3, 2011

Last year's winning entry was submitted by Adrian Gonzalez Guillen.

The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is offering amateur shutterbugs a great opportunity to capture images of live mollusks in their natural habitats during the museum’s Second Annual Live Mollusk Photography Competition.

Photos of live mollusks eating, moving, mating, etc., are eligible for the contest. Entries will be accepted at the museum until Tuesday, Nov. 1 (including electronically-submitted pictures). The winning submissions will be announced during the museum’s anniversary celebration, to be held Nov. 14-18.

The top photos will be displayed on the museum’s website, Facebook page and in the lobby. A list of contest rules and judging criteria, and the registration form to be completed and e-mailed with each entry, can be found on the museum’s website at www.shellmuseum.org.

Please send all inquiries and entries to Diane Thomas via e-mail at dothomas@shellmuseum.org, or contact the Shell Museum by calling 395-2233.
