The Midpeninsula Regional Open District is now accepting photographs that show the diversity in its open space preserves. Participants may submit photos taken in one of the district's 24 preserves in the South Bay, Peninsula, and Coastside.
Contenders can turn in up to 10 photographs by uploading to the district's SmugMug gallery. Three finalists will be revealed in May. Prizes include a whale-watching cruise and a Flip UltraHD camcorder. All winning entries will be featured in the summer issue of the district's newsletter.
Submissions will be considered for publication in the district's coffee table book, which features art and photography commemorating the reserve. Go to www.openspace.org for contest details.
