A nature center in Jamestown, New York, is accepting entries to its 11th annual photo contest. Photographers age 8 and up from anywhere in the world are eligible to enter.

The 2021 Audubon Community Nature Center Nature Photography Contest offers cash prizes of $200. They’ll be awarded to adult and youth winners in three categories:

– Fauna: any wild animal. No photos of animals in captivity, such as pets, zoos, or rehab animals.

– Flora: all plants, fungi, lichens, etc.

– Landscapes/waterscapes: Mountains, forests, fields, deserts, etc.; oceans, lakes, ponds, rivers, creeks, etc.

Winners and 12 finalists — six youth and six adults — will be displayed indefinitely on the contest website along with the photographer’s name and city/state/country. Audubon will print the winning photographs to exhibit in the nature center in Jamestown, and winners will be named in a news release that is widely distributed, including to their local media, when known.

The contest deadline is August 31, 2021. Full details are at Good luck!
