Dark Sky Photo Contest by San Luis Valley Great Outdoors (CO, USA)
In celebration of International Dark Sky Week, San Luis Valley Great Outdoors (SLV GO!) is hosting a dark sky photo contest the week of April 22nd – May 9th to support the designation of the Sangre de Cristo Dark Sky Reserve.
The Sangre de Cristo Dark Sky reserve is a region-wide initiative involving public land agencies, municipalities, county representatives, and local organizations and communities to protect and preserve our dark sky resource through responsible outdoor lighting policies and public education. SLV GO! is spearheading this dark sky initiative and will be applying to the International Dark Sky Association for International Dark Sky Reserve certification.
SLV GO! and partners must substantiate the quality of our region’s dark skies, and a way to do that is through imagery. Help protect our dark skies by capturing a photo of the starry, night sky!
