Stars Over Newberry's Call to Photographers

Call to Photographers: Stars Over Newberry

On Friday, August 12th, 2016, Discover Your Forest (DYF), a 501c3 non-profit, will play host to hundreds of guests at our 2nd Annual Stars Over Newberry fundraiser. The event will take place atop Lava Butte in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument and will feature stargazing, live music, a silent auction, and fabulous local beer, wine and cuisine. This year’s festivities will coincide with the height of the Perseid Meteor Showers, giving visitors an unparalleled vista of the night sky.

DYF is seeking photographers to donate to Stars Over Newberry by submitting photographs depicting Newberry National Volcanic Monument and the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests.

We know that many of you have chosen to call Central Oregon home because of the beauty and recreation opportunities in our National Forests. Supporting Stars Over Newberry is your chance to contribute directly to the stewardship and visitor services in your forests throughout the year. Last year’s event raised over $17,000 for Discover Your Forest, and was used to support stewardship, conservation education and volunteer programs. This year we hope to raise $20,000 to continue our work on Central Oregon’s public lands.

You can help us achieve our goal by supporting this exciting event. We anticipate over 200 attendees and substantial marketing and media exposure. Your tax-deductible photography donation, entitles you many choices of benefits which include recognition in our marketing materials and 2 tickets to this memorable night out, a $100 value.  

This is a great way to gain increased exposure in Bend while supporting a great cause.
