The Natures Best Photography awards are dedicated in memory of conservation advocate Windland ( Wendy) Rice Smith. Run and sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute the annual Wendy Smith Rice Natures Best Photo competition is not only for a good cause ( see here) but is worth at least taking the time to have a browse through the galleries of entrants images and put in a vote for them! Even better is to enter some images yourself. You might just win!
Aiming to create and rekindle a passion for outdoor enjoyment through the art of photography, these awards are international and hopefully inspiring to a younger city oriented generation of photographers. Open to all levels of experience both film or digital.
