Jamestown, NY – The Jamestown Audubon Nature Center’s 2016 Nature Photography Contest is drawing to a close.
However, as Program Director Jennifer Schlick pointed out, “Whether you choose photographs from your collection or decide to shoot new ones, there is still time to submit entries by the June 30 deadline.”
Schlick said that the Nature Photography Contest, now in its eighth year, helps fulfill Audubon’s mission of connecting people with nature, since a beautiful nature photograph truly inspires appreciation for the natural world.
Photographers with any level of experience are encouraged to submit their favorite images. Entry is simple, as all submissions are made online. Deadline for entry is Thursday, June 30, 2016.
Prizes for the contest are awarded in two divisions with four categories each, for a total of eight winners.
The Youth Division is for ages 8-18 or still in high school; Adult is 18 and over or post-high school.
