Get outdoors to take your best shot.
It’s time to focus on nature. Arizona students ages 13 – 18 are invited to submit nature photos to the 7tth annual “Adventures in Nature” photo contest. Photos should showcase Arizona’s natural beauty, wildlife and people.
The top 10 winners will receive up to $10,000 in prize money plus gift certificates and passes to Nature Conservancy preserves in Arizona. The winners will be announced during an evening awards ceremony May 9 at the Arizona State University Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
Contest winners will also have their photos published by the contest sponsors: The Nature Conservancy in Arizona, Arizona Highways magazine and Cox Communications. Plus, the top three winners will receive a photography workshop from Arizona Highways Photo Workshops.
Last year the contest attracted more than 1,300 submissions from students around the state. The contest is intended to connect young people to the outdoors through photography.
Photographers may submit as many photos as they like. The deadline for submitting photos is midnight April 19, 2019. To enter the contest, go to: arizonahighways.com.
