Big Picture Photography Competition
What on Earth have you photographed?
BigPicture encourages photographers from around the world to contribute their work to this competition that will both celebrate and illustrate the rich diversity of life on Earth and inspire action to protect and conserve it through the power of imagery. Our vision is to engage and inspire the global community to become stewards of the natural world through compelling conservation imagery. Presented by the California Academy of Sciences.
Chaired by award-winning photographer and Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers Suzi Eszterhas, this competition welcomes professional-level, high-caliber nature, wildlife and conservation images and is open to all photographers who aim to capture the beauty and fragility of the natural world through an artistic lens. Enter your nature, wildlife and conservation images for a chance to win significant cash and camera prizes.
The Big Picture Photography Natural World Competition begins at 12:00 am North American Eastern Standard Time (EST) on October 1, 2013 and closes at 11:59 pm North American Eastern Standard Time (EST) March 31, 2014. The Competition is presented by the California Academy of Sciences. To avoid uploading delays, DO NOT WAIT until the final days of the contest to enter. The large number of entrants trying to upload their photos just prior to deadline can overwhelm servers and prevent you from completing your entry or entering the competition by the deadline. We anticipate notifying winners by early May 2014.
The Competition is open to all photographers worldwide, except employees, volunteers and Board Members of the California Academy of Sciences (“Academy”) and the immediate families and individuals living in the same household as such employees, volunteers and Board Members. The Academy reserves the right to verify, in its sole judgment, entrant eligibility. The Competition is void where prohibited.
