 concept began with simple yet dynamic goals: to celebrate the beauty and diversity of nature through the art of photography, and to use this far-reaching medium as a creative tool for encouraging greater public interest in outdoor enjoyment and conservation stewardship. The annual Windland Smith Rice International Awards program evolved from the ambitious mission to become one of the most highly-respected and visually compelling nature photography competitions in the world. We also run several competitions during the year and the winners are published in our bi-annual publications. Once you have created a contest entry account, it is easy to participate in any open platform.
