The Friends of Jockey’s Ridge Call For Entry

The Friends of Jockey’s Ridge is looking for photographic images of Jockey’s Ridge to

exhibit in the new Visitor Center’s Community Room.

The Jockey’s Ridge Visitor Center has been undergoing renovations for over a year and the

grand opening is currently scheduled for May 25, 2023. One of the features in the Visitor Center will be a Community Room with seating and artwork. Jockey’s Ridge is the most visited park within the NC park system.

Vision: The plan is to use a combination of wide-angle landscape images and tightly cropped textures to make colorful groupings around the room.

The images will be printed on a large format printer, then face-mounted to acrylic.

Timeline: Images need to be submitted for consideration by March 24th. Images will be

selected early April.

Technical Specs: Some of the prints will be quite large. Ideally, we would print them at 300

pixels per inch, but if the file quality is not available, we may be able to use them for smaller


The sizes planned are: 58” x 32”, 32’ x 28”, 15” x 27”, and 13” x 15”

Please use the link below for submissions (also includes permission for usage)

The images will be chosen by an interpretive design team with the North Carolina State Parks.

The Friends of Jockey’s Ridge is a nonprofit organization established in 1990 for the support

and maintenance of programs and the development of facilities of Jockey’s Ridge State Park.

Our mission is to support, enhance and promote Jockey’s Ridge State Park as a significant

geologic feature of the Outer Banks, North Carolina.
