The Nature Conservancy invites you to enter your stunning nature images in our second annual digital photography competition. Theme: beautiful nature photography representing the diversity of life on Earth.
Images can be submitted to one of 2 categories: Best Photo from a Place We Protect or Best Nature Photo. Lands, waters, plants, animals and people in nature are all eligible for the competition.
How to compete:
To enter one or more images, upload your photo(s) to the Conservancy’s Flickr group and tag them for the appropriate category. Or, if you prefer, you can complete an online form and email each photo, one at a time.
At least 50 photos will be selected as finalists, a minimum of 25 for each category. Each category will have one grand prize winner:
The Best Photo from a Place We Protect category winner’s image will be printed in the 2009 Nature Conservancy calendar. The calendar reaches nearly 2 million households worldwide. To learn more about places we protect, visit the Where We Work section of the web site.
The Best Nature Photo category winner’s image will be featured on The Nature Conservancy’s website, nature.org, which is visited by more than 3 million people annually.
The contest is open to all participants age 18 and older regardless of residence or citizenship, so long as the laws of their jurisdiction allow participation. Photo submissions must be uploaded by 11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time on December 31, 2007.
You will retain all rights to any photograph you submit — including ownership if applicable — other than those rights licensed in the next sentence. By entering the contest, you hereby grant to The Nature Conservancy (i) a nonexclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, publicly display and publicly perform the photographs you submit to The Nature Conservancy, and (ii) the right to use your name, city, state and country of residence in promotions and other publications.
Images may be submitted in one of two categories. Photographers may enter all entries in a single category, or they may select different categories so long as each photo is entered into only one category. Judges reserve the right to move images from one category to the other based on eligibility.
