Enter to Win NWF's New Photo Contest! NWF’s new “The Faces of Climate Change” photo contest is a great opportunity for you to show how you see climate change in your everyday life!

Here’s a chance for you to bring your unique perspective from your niche of the world.

When I think of how climate change affects my local environment, I don’t just consider the problems – but the critical solutions too. For example, I see the landfill in my Midwestern hometown that rose above all other points on the horizon, but I also think of the mammoth but graceful wind turbines I see when driving through rural Illinois.

So now’s your turn. Bring your camera along for your next ride or walk around your community and capture the local impacts of climate change.

Besides telling your story, what’s in it for you?

Well for one, the top two photos will win an opportunity to meet with your elected leaders in Washington DC.

PLUS, every image will make a mark because all the photos will be made into a photo collage that will be delivered to the U.S. Senate and help communicate the urgency of addressing climate change for our environment and our communities across America.

So, get your shutter snapping and be sure to submit your photo by September 15th.

Your pictures can be worth a thousand words and you also don’t want to miss your possibility to meet with your decision makers!
