It’s all in how you see it—bring your unique perspective on nature to our photography contest. Each image is an act of preservation (and yours might just be a winner)

Submit your best shots

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. 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. 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. View the contest guidelines and submit your photos using the form below:
