Now until Sept. 1 Dade Heritage Trust (DHT), in partnership with Million Trees Miami and TREEmendous Miami, will be accepting submissions for its inaugural photo contest and exhibit, titled “TREES.”
“The contest and exhibit aim to drive awareness to the lack of tree canopy in Miami, partially due to rapid development and transportation demands,” said Chris Rupp, executive director of Dade Heritage Trust. “We want to emphasize the importance of trees for a healthy, happy and beautiful Miami.”
The photo contest winners will receive a cash prize, with all entries to be exhibited at DHT’s headquarters, an official Miami visitor’s center located at 190 SE 12 Terr. in Brickell. The TREES exhibit opens on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 6 p.m.
The contest is sponsored by Tropical Treescapes Inc., Leica Camera and Miami Photo Workshops.
Registration is $35 to cover the cost of printing for the exhibition. Interested participants must fill out the registration form and submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Chris Rupp at 190 SE 12 Terrace, Miami, FL 33131. Visit dadeheritagetrust.org or call 305-358-9572 for additional information.
