National Natural Landmarks Photo Contest

The seventh annual National Natural Landmarks photo contest is now underway.

Each entrant may submit up to three photographs to the contest, but each photograph must be from a different National Natural Landmarks (NNL) site. Please note a change in the contest rules this year. To promote greater diversity of NNL sites represented in the contest and calendar, images of the 13 NNL sites featured in large format in the 2010 calendar will not be accepted. These images can be found by clicking here.

The National Natural Landmarks Program, administered by the National Park Service, recognizes outstanding examples of our country’s natural history and supports landowner’s voluntary conservation efforts. It is the only natural areas program of national scope that recognizes the best examples of biological and geological features in both public and private ownership. The 586 NNL sites nationwide possess scientific significance, educational value and exceptional scenic beauty.
