Niagara Gazette — The Aquarium of Niagara is celebrating the 23rd annual Penguin Days March with a penguin photography contest.

This year one grand winner will be chosen from all entries. In addition, a first and second place winner will be selected in two age categories: adult: (12 and older) and child (11 and under). Each entrant may submit between one and five photographs of the Niagara aquarium’s own prize penguins or photos taken of other penguins elsewhere. To take photos of the penguins at the Aquarium of Niagara, one only has to come, pay admission and take as many pictures as desired.

The grand prize winner will receive a penguin encounter; first and second prize winners will receive an 8x10 unframed penguin art piece from the aquarium. Each winner will also receive an award certificate, and media recognition. Photographs will be displayed at our annual Penguin Days Celebration on March 29-30.

All submissions must have the entrant’s name on the back of the photo with location and title. Both electronic and hard copy submissions will be accepted-though electronic submission is preferred. Images must be no smaller than 5x7 and no larger than 8x10. Digital images should be 300 or more dpi. Mail photographs and required entry form to the Aquarium of Niagara, Exhibits Department, 701 Whirlpool Street, Niagara Falls, NY, 14301 by March 21.

Photographs will be displayed at the Aquarium’s annual Penguin Days Celebration on March 29-30. For more information, contact the exhibits department at 285-3575, ext. 211, or email at mpaterson@aquariumofniagara.org.
