Along with a grand prize winner, there will be first and second place awards for ages 12 and up, including adults, and for photographers age 11 and under. Contestants can submit up to five photos of the aquarium’s penguins or of penguins elsewhere, in exhibits or the wild.
The grand prize is a personal penguin encounter. Other winners will receive a penguin art piece and award certificate. The photos will be on display during Penguin Days, March 21 and 22.
