Audubon Community Nature Center is excited to add a new category for photographers for the 2023 contest. This year, there will be three categories that are judged by a panel of photographers: plants, wildlife, and landscapes. The winner of each category in both youth and adult divisions will win $200. There is also a Community Choice award of $200 for the photo that gets the most votes in both the adult and youth divisions.
- Wildlife: Any animal is acceptable, including birds, mammals, fish, snails, insects, and more. Photos of animals in captivity, such as pets, zoos, or rehab animals are not accepted.
- Landscapes: Submit your best view, whether it is of mountains, oceans, lakes, rivers, forests or any other natural view.
- Plants: Submit your most beautiful plant photos, whether it is of seeds, leaves, flowers, or whole plants.
It is possible that a photo could receive both the Community Choice and another award.>
This category is judged by the online community who can vote with $1 a vote for the photos they like best. There is a $200 prize for the photo with the most votes in both the youth and the adult division. It is possible that a photo or a photographer will receive both the community choice award and win in another category.
