2021 Photo Contest opens Sept. 1

There is natural beauty throughout coastal Alabama. In the way the sunlight touches a leaf, or a baby sea turtle takes its first steps on snow-white sand. Perhaps it’s the petals of a Spider Lily, or the majestic Brown Pelican as it glides low across the water. Every year, the South Alabama Land Trust invites amateur photographers to submit their photos of the images they capture in one of four categories—flora, fauna, habitats, and people in nature. Photos must be taken in south Alabama. Photo contest entries are submitted in either the adult or junior division, and a panel of judges selects first, second, and third place winners in each category and division, with one Best in Show. 

NEW THIS YEAR: Cell Phone Category

The images the photographers capture help underscore why it is critically important that we protect our natural resources.

Winning photos are seen throughout the year in SALT publications, on the website, and in social media.

The 2021 SALT Photo Contest is now open for entries. Deadline to enter is November 1, 5pm.
