Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

2010 “People in Nature” photo contest

baynature-Orange-logo-150px.gif (2 KB)Photos must be set in the greater SF Bay Area and nearby surroundings. Please visit our website to view the locations we cover in our magazine. Enter your images of people out in the natural places they love. Winning photos will appear in the tenth anniversary issue of Bay Nature magazine, in January 2011; winners will also receive cash and prizes from Bay Nature and Sarber’s Cameras .

Photo captions must accompany all submissions, and should include the subject of the image, the date taken, the location where the image was taken, and the name of the photographer. For photos of people who are recognizable, please have names and contact information available. (If your photo is one of the finalists, we’ll ask the folks in the picture for permission to use the image in Bay Nature materials to help spread the word.)

Do not include photographs of pets or domestic animals, other than dogs or horses using the parks with human supervision. Images of captive animals photographed in zoos and commercial game farms are also prohibited.

Our preference is for photographs that accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared, though images with digital manipulation for artistic effect—if clearly identified or acknowledged—may be considered.
