Each season, one photo will be selected to be featured on the forest website and social media channels from each of the following categories: Wildlife, nature focus and recreation. There also will be a vote for the overall winner each year.

The forest is spread across nine counties, including Jackson, from Monroe Lake to the Ohio River in south central Indiana.

The fall photography contest is open until Nov. 25. Photographs can be submitted to [email protected] or mailed to Hoosier National Forest, Attention: Alexander Johnson, 248 15th St., Tell City, IN 47586.
