Mass Audubon Statewide Photo Competition
Mass Audubon reminds shutterbugs that its annual statewide photo competition, Picture This: Your Great Outdoors, is accepting 2015-eligible entries until the end of this month. Photographers have until Sept. 30 to submit images to the contest and Sept. is a terrific month for outdoor photography, with photo-friendly weather, and foliage season starting to show its colors.
Competition is divided into two age levels, 18 and older and under 18.
Submission categories include: People in Nature, Birds, Mammals, Other Animals, Plants and Fungi, Landscapes and, new this year, Travel. Each entrant may submit up to five photographs, which must be taken in Massachusetts, at Mass Audubon's Wildwood Camp in Rindge, NH, or on a Mass Audubon-led trip (domestic or international).
One grand prize winner will be awarded $250 gift card to redeem at a Mass Audubon shop or a wildlife sanctuary, in addition to being featured in Connections, Mass Audubon's member newsletter. Up to 12 winners will win $100 gift cards and at least six honorable mentions will win $50 gift cards, all to be redeemed at a Mass Audubon shop or wildlife sanctuary. Additional honorable mentions may be awarded at discretion of the judges.
All submissions, regardless of original format, must be submitted online. Visit www.massaudubon.org/picturethis/ for contest rules, submitting images online, and other details.
