All contest entries must be submitted by Saturday, September 14, 2019. All artwork should be original and have a connection to Yosemite National Park. Subject matter can focus on wildlife, plants, scenic areas, iconic features, seasonal changes, conservation and protection, or the legacy that Yosemite represents.
