Protect open space with a click! You can protect the Tri-Valley’s beauty forever
by capturing it in a photo that will help to preserve open space forever.

Photographers are invited to show us their view of the Tri-Valley’s beauty in our annual photography competition. What better way to show our fellow community members why these lands need to be protected than by showcasing their beauty through a photograph? The top photos will be exhibited across the East Bay to display your talent and the lovely lands of the Tri-Valley that connect our communities and enrich our lives.

We have an Adult Category and a Youth Category which is open to students from 6th through 12th grades.

If you’d like to to take in the artistic, scenic beauty of the Tri-Valley that you help protect, you can see the Top 25 photos in the 2017 Freeze Frame Gallery here.

Awards & Celebration

Unique and amazing perspectives of open space across the Tri-Valley graced the walls during the opening exhibit and award ceremony for the Freeze Frame Photography 2017 competition. Attendees were among the first to see the new works of art that will help to protect more lands, celebrate local photographers and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres. Plus,  everyone who joined us had one more chance to cast another vote for People’s Choice!


Photographers from 6th graders to adults entered their photos July 1st through 31st 2017. Photos of the Tri-Valley’s lands can be taken any time.
