The Wilderness Land Trust sponsors Wilderness Forever Photo Contest

Jul. 16, 2013

The Wilderness Land Trust is proud to sponsor the Wilderness Forever Photo Contest!
This is your chance to showcase your wilderness art on a national stage!
In 2014, the Wilderness Act will reach its Golden Anniversary. In tribute to this milestone, Wilderness50—a coalition of government agencies, nonprofit groups, foundations, and other supporters—have joined together to celebrate the 50-year mark through numerous educational events, including the "Wilderness Forever" nationwide photography competition and print exhibition at the Smithsonian.
The Wilderness50 coalition, distinguished panel of judges, the Smithsonian Institution, and the team at Nature’s Best Photography now invite photographers at all levels of experience to enter the new "Wilderness Forever" photography competition. This nationwide call for entries seeks your best photos and personal stories and experiences within America’s protected wilderness areas.

Category Winners and a selection of Highly Honored photos will be displayed in a 2014 print exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, one of the most widely respected and highly visited museums in the world. In addition, all winning images will be published in a special publication produced to commemorate this golden anniversary event and promoted nationwide through other electronic, print, and event promotions. Each of the four contest categories will have a Pro, Amateur, and Student winner, plus Honorable Mentions. See the Entry Guidelines for complete details and categories:

We encourage you to highlight the work of The Wilderness Land Trust in the stories that accompany your photos. During the next 6 weeks, we ask you to share your entries with us, by emailing photos to We will feature your work on our website and Facebook.
