How do you love the valley?

Wood River Land Trust seeks submission for annual contest

Express Staff Writer

“Felt Hats All in a Row” by Beverley Robertson. Robertson’s photograph was a winning image at the Wood River Land Trust’s 2009 Heart of the Valley contest.

The Wood River Land Trust's sixth annual Heart of the Valley contest seeks submissions for the 2010 event. The theme for this year's contest is expressing the ways in which the many bodies of water in the Wood River Valley awe, inspire and nurture. Many visitors and residents enjoy being on the water or in it, whether viewing it from a distance or from the end of a fishing rod. The Wood River Land Trust wants to acknowledge that the Wood River Valley's most valuable asset is water.

Categories for submission are adult photography, adult writing, student photography and student writing. The deadline for the contest is Friday, Jan. 8, at 5 p.m. and there is a $5 entry fee per submission for nonmembers. Members and students may submit entries for free. Submissions can be dropped off at the Wood River Land Trust office at 119 E. Bullion St. in Hailey.

Prizes will be awarded on Feb. 12, during Gallery Walk, from 5-8 p.m. at the Blagojce Gallery in the Walnut Avenue Mall on Sun Valley Road in Ketchum. Photographs will be displayed at various locations and writings will be read at an event at Iconoclast Books the following week.

Only amateur photography and writing submissions will be accepted. Submission guidelines are available by calling 788-3947 or by visiting

The Wood River Land Trust is a local nonprofit organization that protects and restores land, water and wildlife habitat in the Wood River Valley and its surrounding areas by working cooperatively with private landowners and local communities.
