Golden photographer Frank Zurey won numerous awards in this year’s writing and photography contest sponsored by Rocky Mountain Outdoor Writers and Photographers.
In the video clips category, Zurey won first place for a clip of a great blue heron feeding its young. Video judge Ann Lukacs of Breckenridge wrote, “This clip of `dancing birds’ could be used in a variety of videos, especially when paired with the right music.” Also in the video clips category, he took third place for “Barred Owl,” which the judge called “an interesting study of the owl.”
In still photography, Zurey won first place in the published images category for his photo “Pallid Bat Coming for Water,” which was displayed in the Denver Audubon Share the View show. He also won second place in the image from last conference category for his photo “Lazuli Bunting.” His photo of a great white egret displaying its plumage took third place in the black and white category. In the scenics category, he received honorable mention for his image “Anchor & Ogive Glaciers.”
Awards were presented at the organization’s annual conference in Alamosa. More than 500 entries - photos, written works, and videos - were submitted from 26 RMOWP members.
Formed in 1973, Rocky Mountain Outdoor Writers and Photographers is an organization of professional and semi-professional photographers, writers, cinematographers, and artists who specialize in outdoor subjects, ranging from fishing and hunting to hiking and exploring public lands, with an emphasis on activities in the American West.
Each year the group has a conference offering members an opportunity to improve their skills through workshops and field trips, share experiences, and explore local attractions. The 2019 conference is Sept. 9-12, in Estes Park and adjacent Rocky Mountain National Park. Details will be available soon at www.rmowp.org.
