Photo contest efforts must happen naturally
Audubon Community Nature Center in Jamestown, is now accepting submissions for its 2021 Nature Photography Contest.

Winners in both the adult (ages 18 or older, or out of high school) and youth (ages 8 to 18, or still in high school) divisions in all three categories will each receive a $200 cash prize.
The winning photographs and 12 finalists – six youth and six adults – will be displayed indefinitely on the contest website along with the photographer’s name and city/state/country.
