NATURE'S BEST BACKYARDS PHOTO CONTEST IS CLOSING SOON! DEADLINE: Sept. 26, 2014 CLICK HERE TO ENTER
Photographers from all levels of experience (Pro, Amateur, and Youth 18 and under) are invited to enter this year's competition for a chance to be published in the 2015 Spring/Summer edition of Nature's Best Photography magazine. Photos for the Best Backyards contest do not always need to be taken specifically in your own backyard. There are many different photographic opportunities including these suggestions for photo subjects:
Plant Life: flowers, trees, and other flora in natural habitat.
Private Gardens: beautiful, dramatic, or unusual perspectives.
Public Gardens: community parks and gardens, neighborhood parks open to the public.
Small World: close-up or macro shots of flowers, insects, etc.
Water Life: man-made or natural ponds, waterfalls, streams, and wetlands in a backyard environment; also frogs, fish, and aquatic plant life.
Wildlife: Wild animals observed in backyard habitats (no captive animals are accepted)—birds, mammals, etc.
The editors of Nature’s Best Photography and Alert Diver magazines invite all photographers to enter the 2014-15 Ocean Views Photography Awards. Through sharing your passion for the ocean, we hope to inspire a global audience to learn about and protect this fragile realm. We encourage a diverse variety of entry subjects that depict life below, above, and around the ever-changing ocean surface. The winning images will be published in spring editions of Nature’s Best Photography and Alert Diver magazines, online editions, and galleries. See the Entry Guidelines PDF for complete rules. Photos will be judged on technical quality, composition, originality, and artistic merit. Professional photographers, Amateurs, and Youth (18 and under) are welcome to enter. You may submit a total of up to 20 images for one entry fee ($25 US—no foreign checks or foreign money orders).
