The special events displayed on this calendar are annual nonprofit fundraisers or other events of significant note. Nonprofits can submit up to two events annually.
We hope this will help our nonprofits and local committees plan annual fundraisers – thereby avoiding overlap in busy schedules.
Wildlife Photo Contest
September 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary is holding its fourth-annual Wildlife Photo Contest to further its mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and release wild animals in central Virginia. All local photographers — amateur and professional — are invited to enter photos of Virginia wildlife and landscapes. A $20 per photo suggested donation will go directly to Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary.
Contestants should bring their 8×10” print(s) to The Great Frame Up, the contest’s sponsor, at 1860 Rio Hill Center, during the month of August. An online entry form with digital photo entry will also be available through the Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary website. All entries will be judged, and twelve finalists’ photos will illustrate a 2017 Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary calendar.
The entry period for The Wildlife Photo Contest runs through August 31. All entries will be professionally matted, and will be on display in September at The Great Frame Up. Finalists will be announced at a reception on Saturday, September 23, from 5:30-7:30, at The Great Frame Up. The public is invited to view all the photos and learn more about the Sanctuary’s work. There will also be a “People’s Choice Award” selected by those who attend the Reception.
