What’s Your Nature?

The Nature Conservancy is committed to a future for people and nature. For our 2017 Photo Contest, we’d like to know: “what’s your nature?” What does nature mean to you? Everyone sees nature through a different lens, and we want you to show us your view!

Eligibility:
The Digital Photo Contest (“Photo Contest”) is open to all professional and amateur photographers who have reached the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence at the time of entry.

Deadline:
May 31, 2017

Requirements:
To ensure eligibility for the contest, please submit files no larger than 20MB at the time of entry. Higher resolution files of at least 240 dpi/ppi will be requested should an entry be preselected to be awarded a prize or an honorable mention. All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, reasonable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified.
Entries may originate in any format — including, but not limited to digital files, digital prints, color transparencies, color prints, or black and white prints — so long as they are submitted electronically in a .JPEG .jpg, or.png form. Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single "High Dynamic Range" image are acceptable.
Entries should include metadata if at all possible. Caption information should include:
· Location
· Name of location (ex: Glacier, National Park)
· City
· State/Province
· Country
· Detailed caption of subject matter
