This year, as part of the 31st Annual Mt. Pisgah Mushroom Festival, the Cascade Mycological Society will once again hold a mushroom photo contest. You are free to contribute photos related to mushrooms, mushroom culture and our fungal pals in general. The best three photographs will be displayed at the festival, and these three winners will receive a CMS T-shirt and framed picture of their entry.
To participate, send up to 3 digital photos to email@example.com.
Include your full name and mailing address, and please include additional details about the photo such as the location, time of year taken, etc. Send digital files (in separate emails if necessary) at full resolution so that the winning prints may be enlarged and look their best. Email size should be less than 10 MB.
Submissions must be received by October 20, 2012. No restrictions are placed on location of photos or residence of contest participants. Submissions from outside of Oregon or the United States are welcome.

We received many beautiful photos of mushrooms for the contest and selected three for display at the festival. Here they are in case you didn’t get a chance to see the prints there. We’ll also be looking at some photos (time-permitting) at November’s general meeting.
