Life in Focus Photo Contest

 

One of the best parts of springtime is watching everything around us bloom and slowly come back to life. For this Spring Photo Contest, we’re putting “Life in Focus” and celebrating the living things that make each day amazing.

Because the theme of this contest covers a large variety of subjects, we want to feature as many of them as possible so we’ll be breaking the judging down into FOUR categories! Three winners will be selected from each category, and participants can enter up to two images per category. If you do choose to enter more than one category, please note that you can only place in one, which will allow more photographers to shine!

Categories are as follows:

 

People

Prefer striking studio portraits? Maybe you like to capture candid photos of people on the streets or your friends casually catching up over a meal? Whatever style you enjoy, we want to see your favorite photos of the people around you.

 

Pets

Whether your pets are furry, snuggly companions or they spend their time basking in their shells under heat lamps in a tank, share your best photos of pets for this category.

 

Plants & Pollinators

Don’t forget about the small things! We want to see your favorite photos of bugs and plants, and challenge you to make the small things larger than life.

 

Wildlife

Lions, tigers, and… birds? Share your images of wild animals in their natural habitats or at the zoo for this category.
