Calling all amateur photographers! North Carolina Wildlife Federation is sponsoring our second annual Wildlife Photography Contest running from May 1st to July 31st.
Images should highlight the beauty of North Carolina’s nature and wildlife- in your own backyard or the larger backyard of North Carolina’s natural landscapes and creatures. Categories include “Carolina Critters”, “People in Nature”, and “Scenes of North Carolina.” Note: This year there will be a youth category for entrants 13 years of age and younger. Entry donations start at $15 for 9 photos- all proceeds support wildlife habitat conservation and restoration in North Carolina. There will be one adult winner per category as well as one youth winner. Good luck!

The Annual International Image Challenge is one of the TOP International Competitions in the Photographic Industry, judged by true photographic professional judges, instructors and mentors.
There are no annual membership fees to the MPI Organization. You are able to work towards a photographic degree if you like or simply get inspired and push your work.
The MPI International Image Challenge, names 1 TOP winner, 6 category winners and in 2019, there were 60 first place winners.
If you would like a bit of inspiration, you can view some of the past winners on https://iiccomp.com/PAST-WINNERS
Since most everyone is stuck at home right now, this is the perfect opportunity for you to create and participate in our competition. Eligibility to enter is open to artists residing in NC, ages 18 and up.
The exhibit is to run July 9th thru September 2nd and this year there are more chances to win, including prizes for honorable mention and people's choice!
We are optimistic that our gallery will be back open in time for this exhibit but if, for some reason, we are unable to reopen in time due to the current pandemic situation, we will convert it to a virtual competition and prizes will still be awarded. In that instance, since your piece will be judged on an image alone, we would just ask for you to send a few more pictures so that we can get the full effect!
For more information please visit:
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. And, please be sure to share this opportunity to all of your artist friends and families! The deadline for entry is June 12th at midnight.
