Submissions are now being accepted for the annual Audubon Community Nature Center Nature Photography Contest. This year's theme is Natural Wonders: Big and Small. You are invited to submit work that best fits within the concept of the theme. Nature photographer Bill Smith will be the judge of this year's applicants. Cash prizes will be awarded to first and second place winners in both adult and youth divisions. Winning photographs will be displayed at Audubon Community Nature Center for one year. Winners and finalists will receive exposure through this website as well as a personalized critique from Bill Smith.
Part of Audubon's mission is to connect people with nature. The Nature Photography Contest fulfills that mission in two ways. The photographer connects with nature while making images and the viewer becomes inspired to connect with nature by seeing the images.
