Nature All Around Us Photo Contest
Photographers around the state share their nearby nature
In conjunction with our Nature All Around Us special exhibition, the Natural History Museum of Utah challenged photographers of all levels around the state to capture the nature in their communities.
Over 450 people from 23 counties in Utah—including 28 youth photographers—accepted the challenge. They submitted images of creatures in parking lots, cemeteries, golf courses, and sidewalk cracks. But, by far, most photographers snapped a picture right in their own yard. One young photographer explained: “There really are great scenes of nature all around us; we just need to see them.”
Three professional photographers reviewed all the submissions and selected 43 winners to be featured in Nature All Around Us. You can see the winning images and all the wonderful submissions by clicking on the galleries below.
