Entries welcome for annual Yellowstone photo festival

Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park.

Shutterbugs of all types are invited to submit photos for the eighth annual Yellowstone Fall Photo Festival, taking place Sept. 30 at Yellowstone National Park.

Entries previously restricted to images from Yellowstone can be from any of the nearly 400 National Parks this year, to celebrate National Public Lands Day on Sept. 26 and also the debut of Ken Burns' "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" film series on PBS beginning Sept. 27.

All submissions, from vacation snapshots to pro photos, are welcome.

Photographers may send up to 25 digital images, and will be asked to spend no more than five minutes narrating the story behind their photos.

The festival presentation will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 30 in the Community Room of the West Yellowstone Visitor Information Center and is open to the public.

With no judging or prizes, the evening will be very casual and reminiscent of family slide shows, except everyone attending will be there because they want to be.

Those interested in participating should contact Rich Jehle at (307) 344-2840 for more information or to register. Registration deadline is Sept. 25.
