Calling all photographers - Nature Photography Day photo contest

Thursday, June 9, 2016 - 12:00am

Calling all photographers! In celebration of national Nature Photography Day on June 15, DEQ is sponsoring a nature photography contest. Nature photography offers a way to connect with the outdoors and learn about complex ecosystem connections. Images captured through nature photography can also bring the wonders of the outside world to those who may not have access to parks, beaches, preserves and other natural areas. With North Carolina’s wealth of spectacular scenery, flora and fauna, there are endless photo opportunities statewide. So grab your camera, head outside and send us your best shot.

Guidelines: Entries should be emailed to Photos must be taken in North Carolina. When submitting images, please include a caption that explains the photo and where it was taken. Entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. June 14 to be considered in the competition. The winning image will be posted as the cover photo on DEQ’s Facebook page and the photographer will receive an award certificate.
