Audubon Community Nature Center Accepting Submissions for 2024 Nature Photography Contest

April 15, 2024

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – The Audubon Community Nature Center is now accepting submissions for its 2024 Nature Photography Contest.

A total of $1,600 in prize money will be awarded to winners. Adults and youth ages 8–18 have four ways to win $200 for their nature photographs. Deadline for submissions is Sunday, July 7, 2024.

Full details of the competition are at GoGoPhotoContest.com/ACNCPhotoContest2024, where photos can be submitted, the public can vote on entries, and see the 2022 and 2023 contest winners.

Judges will choose the adult and youth winners as well as three honorable mentions in the categories of Wildlife, Scapes, and Macros and Close-up Details. All winners receive a $200 cash prize.

In the Wildlife category, any wild animal is acceptable, including birds, mammals, fish, snails, insects, etc. Photographs of animals in captivity, such as pets, zoo residents, or rehab/education animals are not accepted.

In the Scapes category, you can submit your photo of landscapes, plantscapes, seascapes, weather, clouds, rainbow, mountains, ponds, or any view that you find beautiful.

For the category of Macros and Close-up Details, you don’t need a macro lens to get an amazing close-up shot. This category is not just for close-up shots of small things, but also for close-up details of large things, like an animal’s eye or a detail on a fossil.

Cash prizes of $200 will also be awarded to the Adult and Youth photos receiving the most Community Choice votes online. A photo could receive both the Community Choice and a judged award.

Winning and honorable mention photographs will be displayed on the contest website. ACNC will print the winners to exhibit in the Nature Center, and winners and honorable mentions will be announced in a news release that is widely distributed, including to their local media when known.

The sooner photographs are submitted, the longer the public can vote for them for the Community Choice awards. Photographers are reminded to encourage friends and family to vote for their photo(s). All the social media buttons are right there for postings.
