BigPicture Natural World Photography Competition

What on Earth have you photographed?
The California Academy of Sciences’ BigPicture: Natural World Photography Competition encourages photographers from around the world to contribute their work to the 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.
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.
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 California Academy of Sciences is a multifaceted scientific institution committed to leading-edge research, to educational outreach, and to finding new and innovative ways to engage and inspire the public. The Academy’s mission—to explore, explain and sustain life—extends to all corners of the institution; from a research expedition in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, to a teacher-training program in a California classroom, to an interactive game on the museum exhibit floor.
