DSF 40th Anniversary Photo Competition Winners Announced!

Updated: Aug 25, 2022

The DSF 40th Anniversary Competition received stellar entries from our supporters and community members. It was awesome to see all what DSF supporters capture behind their camera lenses, and it was hard to choose our favorites! But the panel of judges decided, and we announced our 1st place winners at the Blueberry Festival just last weekend.

All 1st place winners got a free two-day stay at one of our updated camps, Lack or Wigwams! These special camps are available to be rented out throughout the year, and if you're interested in staying at one of DSF camps this year (just like our lucky winners!) you can visit to book your stay!

All winners of the competition receive gift certificates to local Machias brewery Bad Little Falls Brewing Co. and a limited edition DSF hat.

Short Video Winner: Robin Hadlock Seeley
