BigPicture Natural World Photography 2018 Competition
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. Awards include $12,000 in cash prizes with winning images featured in a BigPicture photography exhibit at the Academy opening July 27, 2018.
Competition categories include: Terrestrial Wildlife; Winged Life; Landscapes, Waterscapes, & Flora; Aquatic Life; Art of Nature; Human/Nature; 2018 Photo Series: Time Capsule.
Competition entries will be judged by an esteemed panel of world-renowned photographers and photo editors, including Jury Chair Suzi Eszterhas. This year, we’re pleased to welcome former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly to the judging panel. Kelly, the former commander of the International Space Station (ISS), holds the record for the single longest space mission by an American astronaut. During his 340 days in space, Kelly’s spectacular artistic photographs of planet Earth earned him a global following.
