The Massachusetts Audubon Society has announced its annual statewide photo contest, “Picture This: Your Great Outdoors.”
Shutterbugs of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience are invited to share the natural beauty of the Bay State through their photography.
The competition, which each year attracts hundreds of photographers who submit thousands of images, continues through Monday, September 30.
Participants can enter in either “18-and-Older” or “Under-18” age categories and can focus on six subject areas: People in Nature, Birds, Mammals, Other Animals, Landscapes, and Plants and Fungi. Contestants can submit up to 10 images.
Photographs, taken any time prior to or during the 2019 contest period, must have been shot in Massachusetts or at Mass Audubon’s Wildwood Camp in Rindge, NH.
One Grand Prize winner will be awarded a $250 gift card, in addition to being featured in Mass Audubon’s member newsletter, “Explore.”
Eleven winners will receive $100 gift cards, and at least six honorable mentions will receive $50 gift cards. Additional honorable mentions may be awarded at the discretion of the judges.
All gift cards are to be redeemed at a Mass Audubon shop or wildlife sanctuary.
