Breaking News: Contest for Nature Photographers

Birdy in m'Bush

The Nature Conservancy has called for entries for it's 3rd annual digital photography competition "to inspire others to protect our natural world."

"We're looking for beautiful nature photography representing the diversity of life on Earth. Your own original digital images of our lands, waters, plants, animals and people in nature are all eligible for the competition.

We are especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of habitats across our planet, including all types of forests, grasslands, lakes and rivers, deserts and arid lands, rainforests, marine habitats and coral reefs."

To enter photos, upload them to the Conservancy's Flickr group and tag them with PhotoContest-TNCO8 or complete an online form and email each photo, one at a time.

Submit as many photos as you'd like, as often as you like up unitl 11:59 PST on OCTOBER 15, 2008. Make sure to read all the rules. They want photos of flora and fauna found in the that trip you took to the local zoo won't count last summer won't count!

I've already submitted some photos to the Flickr group, including the shot of the chick in this blog and my favorite shot of that elusive red fox in my boyfriend's mountain cabin backyard. I was shocked to see that more than 75,000 photos have already been entered. But don't let that hold you back. You won't know what the response will be until you do it.
