Statewide photo contest for Mass Audubon to have one month left
Mass Audubon’s popular photo contest, Picture This: Your Great Outdoors, is entering its final month. That means photographers have until Saturday, September 30 to submit up to 10 images that reflect the natural beauty of the Bay State.
Participants may compete in one of two age categories, 18 and Older and Under 18. Photographs must be taken in Massachusetts or at Wildwood, Mass Audubon’s overnight camp in Rindge, NH. Images can have been taken at any time prior to or during the contest but submissions, regardless of original format, must be submitted online.
Subject areas include: People in Nature, Birds, Mammals, Other Animals, Landscapes, and Plants and Fungi.
The Picture This: competition attracts thousands of entries each year, from hundreds of photographers of all abilities, ages, and backgrounds. And September typically offers lots of great weather conditions for shutterbugs: clear blue skies, softer light, and trees starting to adorn themselves in autumn colors.
One grand prize winner will be awarded a $250 gift card (to be redeemed at a Mass Audubon shop or a wildlife sanctuary), in addition to being featured in Explore, Mass Audubon’s member newsletter. Eleven winners will win $100 gift cards and at least six honorable mentions will win $50 gift cards. Additional honorable mentions may be awarded at the discretion of the judges.
