MDC's Discovery Center plans nature photo exhibit

Photo submissions from public welcome

Kansas City, Mo. – Photographers find Missouri a great place to discover nature, from tiny
insects to wide vistas of woodlands or prairies. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is looking for photographers willing to share pictures of their favorite discoveries in nature.
   Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center welcomes photo submissions for a special display in November and December. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 31. Photos must be taken in Missouri and should be nature oriented. They can include people enjoying nature, such as a child discovering a frog, butterfly or flower.
    Photographers should submit high resolution jpeg photos via e-mail atdiscoverycenter@mdc.mo.gov. The e-mail system will accept photo file sizes up to five megabytes. Please include photographers name, photo subject, location where taken and date where taken. Those submitting photos chosen for the exhibit will be notified by e-mail.
