PLANET Magazine is pleased to announce a unique new photo contest that celebrates and explores the natural beauty and wonder of our planet. For the last four years, PLANET has held the annual This is Earth Photo Contest with top judges, prizes, and international exposure for our entrants. This spring, we’re introducing This Is Earth, a new contest with a theme we feel is sure to inspire photographers everywhere.
All who are interested please send us your favorite images of the natural world – whether from your own backyard or places you’ve traveled to. We’re interested in seeing your best shots of flowers, mountains, deserts, rivers, trees, oceans, moons, sunrises and sunsets, valleys and streams, volcanoes and skies, and a hundred other amazing aspects of our world. Not to mention the splendor of animals and birds and fish. No humans please. Just nature and animals.
The contest theme, “This is Earth”, is meant to be both an affirmation and a celebration of the beauty and natural splendor of the planet that is our home
