“For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this (20th) century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.” ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau
The veneration of fleeting moments of beauty is now intensified by the quickening pace of loss. To what do you pay tribute and seek to bring attention? Where do you find your sense of place, solace or disruption? What moves, replenishes, or disturbs you? How do you express what resonates with your soul in the natural world, be it the birds, bees, plants, trees, or other creatures? What is the story only you can tell?
Deadline for Submission: February 28, 2023
As we continue to deplete forests and burn the Amazon in the face of increasing global warming, trees have never been more vital to our survival than they are today. Celebrate their existence and their beauty with your images of trees of all sizes and shapes, in all environments and seasons. All captures and processes are welcome.
Five percent (5%) of all submission fees will be donated to the National Forest Foundation, recipient of Charity Navigator‘s highest rating.
Deadline for entries is Monday, June 13, 2022.
“In times of turmoil we often turn to nature for solace and centering. Whether bringing light and focus to what we are losing or celebrating rebirth, from broad landscapes to close up or microscopic forms.
Artists throughout the ages have been drawn to the vast and varied world of botanicals. What moves you? Do you celebrate the essence of beauty or strive to heighten recognition of the perilous path of our environment? Are you inspired by a single bloom or a profusion of blossoms in a lush bouquet, enchanted gardens manicured or messy, plants endangered or invasive, carefully cultivated or sown by nature, bursting forth or shriveling on a vine?”
Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature, devoid of human influence—instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, ambient light and other sublime elements. Beyond purely aesthetic considerations, landscapes often contain intensely personal and emotional subjectivities; evidence of secret histories of fondness, love, and nurturing – or of past emotional turbulence, loss, longing and regret.
Entry Deadline: October 31st, 2021
Wendi Schneider will be jurying and curating PhotoPlace’s 2021 exhibition Essential Water. This exhibition seeks photographs that capture the unique qualities of water—the way it catches light, cuts through the earth, falls from the sky, sustains or threatens life, and changes its forms.

Artists throughout the ages have been drawn to the vast and varied world of flora. What moves you? Do you celebrate the essence of beauty or strive to heighten recognition of the perilous path of our environment? Are you inspired by a single bloom or a profusion of blossoms in a lush bouquet, enchanted gardens manicured or messy, plants endangered or invasive, carefully cultivated or sown by nature, bursting forth or shriveling on a vine?
We’re looking for flora, all types from a single stem to a vast landscape, still life, formal gardens, or vegetation gone wild. Color or monochrome, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
Deadline for submissions is March 7, 2021.
