Photo contest efforts must happen naturally

Audubon Community Nature Center in Jamestown, is now accepting submissions for its 2021 Nature Photography Contest.

Categories are:

¯ Fauna — any wild animal. No photos of animals in captivity, such as pets, zoos, or rehab animals.

¯ Flora — all plants, fungi, lichens, etc.

¯ Landscapes — Waterscapes: Mountains, forests, fields, deserts, etc.; oceans, lakes, ponds, rivers, creeks, etc.

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. ACNC will print the winning photographs for exhibit in the Nature Center, and winners and finalists will be named in a news release that is widely distributed, including to their local media when known.

Deadline for submission of photographs is Tuesday, Aug. 31.

Contest judge Karen Glosser is a fine art nature photographer whose work has led her to memorable places around the world. In her message on the contest website, Glosser says, “As a nature photographer myself, I am so excited to see how each of you interprets and expresses this year’s call for work! Thank you, in advance, for your images. I cannot wait to see each of your submitted photos!”
