2021 Back to Nature Photo Contest

BREC’s Conservation Department is delighted to announce that it is organizing a fantastic Back to Nature Photo Contest for 2021. This photography contest is for youth, adults and professionals. It is divided into three categories: Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, Satellite Conservation Areas and Professional. The program is meant to give photographers the chance to explore the Satellite Conservation Areas they might have never seen before. So if you in love with capturing the tremendous beauty of nature into your camera and aim to become a nature photographer or you are currently working as one of them, then this contest is something that you cannot afford to miss.

This year, BREC’s Conservation Department is going to challenge all the participants to explore and capture the movement of nature in its parks. The theme for this year’s contest is Nature in Motion, and the theme will be the same for each category. So whether you are a novice or professional, you have to follow this theme to compete in this program. From leisurely bayous to busy bees to the shifting of the seasons, nature is in a constant state of motion and change and keeps its beauty. All you need to do is use your photography talent and imagination to take the perfect shots of nature’s beauty and send them to BREC’s Conservation Department to win this contest.
