Join the Aquarium of Niagara in celebrating the 21st annual Penguin Days 2011. On your next visit to the aquarium snap a few shots of our favorite birds. Or show photos that you have taken of other penguins.

Three winners will be chosen: first place, second place, and honorable mention.

Each entrant may submit between one and five photographs of penguins. Photographs may be submitted in either black and white or color. Sorry, no slides.

The Aquarium of Niagara does not assume any responsibility for any entries submitted.

Mail photographs and required entry form to the Aquarium of Niagara, Exhibits Department, at 701 Whirlpool St., Niagara Falls, NY 14305 by March 11. For more information, contact the events department at 285-3575, ext. 206, or e-mail[email protected].

Photographs will be returned to entrants after April 30.

Finalists may be asked to submit model releases of recognizable subjects, signed by the persons appearing in the photograph.

The first prizewinner will receive a penguin encounter; the second prizewinner will receive an 8-by-10 unframed piece of art by a penguin from the Aquarium; and the honorable mention winner will receive a 4-by-6-inch unframed piece of art by a penguin from the Aquarium of Niagara. Each winner will also receive an award certificate, a matted enlargement of the photo and media recognition. The enlarged photograph will be displayed at the Penguin Days celebration on March 26 to 27.

The contest is not open to employees of the Aquarium of Niagara or their immediate family members.
