Nature isn't just a place. It's home!

 

IN A NUTSHELL​

Annual competitions offer a prize amount of $12,000. There are no limit to the number of contests you can simultaneously enter. There’s a limit of 5 images per entry for each contest with a flat $25 entry fee. NPS is a nonprofit organization and uses the non-refundable fees to provide prizes and awards, and to help in its core missions.

 

The current categories include Nature, Culture, Black & White, and Wildlife. New categories are added almost on a weekly basis, so please bookmark us now, and come back to check often.

 

WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT?​

Nature lurks everywhere around us, so much so that we ourselves are part of it. We invite you to capture this ubiquity – in all the miracle it offers – in both its glory and its shortcoming. As a photographer, you’re given the widest latitude to build on this central theme as you feel suitable.

RULES OF THE GAME

Files are required to be less than 2 MB and must be in JPEG or JPG formatting. Please ensure that there aren’t any watermarks and signatures since these will disqualify your submissions. You’re able to submit up to 5 images per contest category, with no limit to the number of contests you can participate in.

EFFECTIVENESS 101​

It’s necessary to ensure that all photos and titles are in the correct order before your final submission since there’s no way to correct any mistakes once your works are submitted. You also won’t be able to add to, change, or delete from, any of the images submitted. Remember that we’re looking for a cohesive body of works, so you should try to submit images that are able to convey a story or in some manner tied together in a seamless fashion.
