From The Field Photo Contest 2017

NRM/ANRS "From The Field" Photo Contest 2017 Guidelines

The ANRS/NRM Photo Contests are designed to share photos that inspire your creativity and scholastic ambitions. There are two competitions per year, one for capturing the nature of fieldwork and the other for wildlife, ecology, and nature. Cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. All winners will be asked to participate in a short interview. A committee of administrators and faculty will judge the photos and select the winners.

Winners will be announced in early Fall 2017.
