Ganondagan's Scenic Acreage Inspires New Photo Contest

Amateur photographers are encouraged to visit the Ganondagan site and capture images of all four seasons for a new calendar photo contest.

Anyone who has ever visited Ganondagan State Historic Site (1488 State Route 444) in Victor, NY knows firsthand the visual beauty of the trails, the bark longhouse, and the flora and fauna that inhabit the Site’s more than 600 acres. Acknowledging the area’s many gifted amateur photographers, Friends of Ganondagan announces its first ever photo contestfor a 2012 Ganondagan calendar.

Photographers should submit original, hi-res photos (between 1-10 MB and in jpg format) taken since 2009 anywhere on the Ganondagan Site grounds or at a Ganondagan-sponsored event. Thirteen photos will be chosen for the calendar (one cover, and one for each month). Photographers are encouraged to submit photos reflecting all four seasons. For complete contest rules—and a short video essay—visit http://ganondagan.org/contest/2012Calendar.html.

Photographers are welcome to come to the Site any day from 8:00 am to sunset. There will be many unique photo opportunities at the Native American Winter Games & Sports (www.ganondagan.org/WinterGames.html) on Saturday, February 5 from 10 am to 4 pm, and attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras.


Ganondagan State Historic Site (www.ganondagan.org) in Victor, NY stands at the location of what was one of the largest, most vital 17th-century Seneca towns until its destruction in 1687.Today, it is a destination for visitors to explore the replica of a bark longhouse and hunting lodge and enjoy self-guided tours through trails on the Site's 600+ acres. It also acts as a resource for students and educators about the Iroquois Confederacy, or Haudenosaunee, and its message of peace. Every summer, Friends of Ganondagan hosts the Native American Dance & Music Festival, attended by more than 4,000 people from all over the world. Friends also sponsors the annual Canandaigua Treaty Day and presents lectures, workshops, and programs reflecting the vibrancy of a living culture and promoting a sustainable future.
