The Nature Conservancy — the leading conservation organization working to protect ecologically important lands and waters worldwide — invites photographers to enter its 2013 Digital Photo Contest. Photographers around the world, 18 years of age or older, are invited to submit striking digital images that celebrate people and nature — and their important connection to each other.
Submitted images should highlight the diversity of life on Earth, including portraits of wildlife in natural habitat, animal behavior, the relationship between people and nature, plant life, weather, and seasons.
The Nature Conservancy’s special interest is in images that showcase the wide range of habitats across our planet, including:
- Freshwater — lakes and rivers
- Deserts and arid lands
- Marine — coral reefs, oceans and coasts
A judging panel will select approximately 50 photos to be the contest’s Finalists and Honorable Mentions. The general public will select the Grand Prize Winner by popular vote from a pool of Finalists determined by the judging panel.
The grand-prize winner’s image will be printed on the cover of the 2015 Nature Conservancy calendar. Other finalist images will also be featured throughout the calendar. All entrants featured in the calendar will receive a copy of the calendar.
