2022 SALT Photo Contest

Every year, South Alabama Land Trust invites amateur photographers from across coastal Alabama to submit photos that showcase the natural beauty throughout coastal Alabama . . . the way the sunlight touches a leaf, or a baby sea turtle takes its first steps on snow-white sand.  The images the photographers capture help underscore why it is critically important that we protect our natural resources.

We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 contest, and invite you to view the winners in the video below.

Winning photos are seen throughout the year, with photo credit, in SALT publications, on our website, and social media @southalabamalandtrust
