The Cullinan Park Conservancy is accepting submissions for its fifth annual photo contest, the organization said in an Aug. 2 news release.

Photographers of all ages may submit up to five total photos across five different categories – birds, wildlife, flora (trees, flowers, plants), landscape and photographer’s choice. There will be an adult competition for photographers who are 19 or older and a youth competition for those up to 18 years old. All submitted photos must be taken at Cullinan Park, 12414 Hwy. 6 in Sugar Land.

There were 258 submissions last year according to Cullinan Park Conservancy President Robbin Mallett, who said in the release that the organization expects to exceed that total in this year’s contest.

One grand prize winner will receive a $100 credit to the Conservancy’s online store. There will also be a first, second and third-place winner in both the adult and youth divisions for each category, the release said, along with honorable mentions at judges’ discretions.

“Many people coped with the pandemic by spending more time outdoors, and Cullinan is a fabulous place for nature exploration and photography,” Mallett said in the release.

The deadline to submit photos for consideration is Sept. 24. For more information about the contest and its full rules, interested photographers can go to
