Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield announces their 6th Annual Photo Exhibit. Entries were submitted by the Southwest Missouri Camera Club. The entries will be on exhibit, at the battlefield, in the Visitor Center multipurpose room, from September 1, 2012, through September 15, 2012. The visitor’s center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., seven days a week.
In partnership with the Southwest Missouri Camera Club, the National Park Service is working cooperatively again this year to highlight the historical and educational aspects of the battlefield through photography. This exhibit allows the camera club to showcase their members’ creative sensitivity experience in presenting the battlefield for future generations.
Photographers were allowed to submit two entries for each of the six categories, up to 12 entries total. First, second, and third place ribbons will be awarded in each category with the winners being announced on September 1, 2012. First place winners will have their photos published in the Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield 2013 Calendar.
