Aug. 31 is the deadline for submitting a photograph that could win $200.

Cash prizes of $200 each will be awarded to winners in both the Youth (ages 8 to 18, or still in high school) and Adult (ages 18 or older, or out of high school) divisions in all three categories of:

• Fauna – any wild animal, no photos of animals in captivity, such as pets, zoos, or rehab animals

The six winning photographs and 12 finalists — six youth and six adults — will be displayed indefinitely on the contest website along with the photographer’s name and city/state/country.

ACNC will print the winning photographs to exhibit in the Nature Center, and winners will be named in a news release that is widely distributed, including to their local media, when known.
