Show us the Nature in Your Community
The contest is now closed for entries and judging will commence shortly. Winners will be announced by the end of November 2018.
Nature is all around us in Utah’s cities and towns. Wild plants and animals live in our backyards, parks, and even our downtowns. Look closely at a crack in the sidewalk, peer into the trees in a parking lot, or kneel beside the pond at the golf course and you’ll discover nature.
The Natural History Museum of Utah wants to feature the wild plants and animals that are part of your community in Nature All Around Us, an exhibition about nature in Utah’s cities and towns. Winning entries will be displayed in this special exhibition we are creating to celebrate Museum’s 50th anniversary in October 2019. All contest entries will be showcased in an online gallery accompanying the exhibition. Capture an image that includes both wild and urban elements and you might have a winner.
The Nature All Around Us photo contest is open to photographers of all levels. Submissions from kids are welcome. In fact, the Museum is reserving about 25 percent of the space in the photo exhibit for entries from minors.
Get outside and photograph the diverse and surprising nature in your community. Then submit your images to the Museum’s Nature All Around Us photo contest by September 4, 2018.
