Entries are being accepted through Sept. 6 for the eighth annual Erie Canalway Photo Contest.
Winning photos will be displayed in the 2014 Erie Canalway Calendar, which will be available free of charge in December.
“The photo contest enables us to see through the eyes of others and discover the places and moments they cherish within the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor,” said Jean Mackay, Erie Canalway Director of communications.
Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit prints and digital images in four contest categories: Bridges, Buildings and Locks; For the Fun of It; On the Water;and the Nature of the Canal.
The contest captures and shares the beauty, history, people and distinctive character of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor, which is comprised of the Erie, Oswego, Cayuga/Seneca and Champlain canals, and their historic alignments, and surrounding communities, according to a news release.
