SALEM - The first days of spring mean flowers, the end of winter and longer days - and this year it is also means the start of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department's popular annual photo contest, Go Click! Amateur photographers who enjoy the great outdoors are invited to go play in Oregon's extensive system of state parks, take photos of their experiences and enter them in this year's contest.

The contest will run from March 25 to Aug. 1, 2008. For contest rules and information about the Oregon Parks and Recreation Go Click! photo contest, including a list of OPRD properties, visit, or call toll free (800) 551-6949.

Judges will choose 12 winning photos, which will be displayed at the 2008 Oregon State Fair in Salem from Aug. 22 to Sept. 1, and will be featured in the 2010 OPRD calendar. The calendar will be available for sale in the spring of 2009.
