National Wildlife Photo Contest Category Spotlight: Connecting People With Nature
from Wildlife Promise
Connecting people with nature is an important part of our mission here at NWF—and it is also one of the seven categories in our annual National Wildlife Photo Contest. The requirement in this category is to show people interacting with nature in an interesting way. That’s much harder than it sounds, but past Photo Contest entrants have found creative ways to meet the challenge. Take a look.
Last year’s first place winner in this category captured a snorkeler surrounded by golden jellyfish in a lake in the Republic of Palau.The second place winner captured his own shadow in the ocean spray while photographing a rainbow on the Oregon Coast. Other photographers portrayed a little girl on the beach listening intently to a shell and a worker in a rice paddy with rainbows in the background.
What’s your favorite way to connect with nature?
If your answer is “through the lens of a camera” then we encourage you to enter the 43rd Annual National Wildlife Photo Contest!
