To help young students tap into their hidden photography talent, the Center for Great Lakes Literacy is not administering an exciting program called “BioBlitz Photo Contest”. This program is active for 2021 and targeting young and emerging photographers. Through this competition, the Center for Great Lakes Literacy wants to celebrate and encourage outdoor photography and motivate budding photographers to get outside to capture the beauty of nature in their cameras. This year, the contest will select up to ten winners. Nine out of ten winners will be given local BioBlitz projects, and the remaining one will be grand prize winner and featured on the umbrella project, the Great Lakes BioBlitz. To be a potential participant of this program, candidates must 18 years old or younger on the first day of the contest.
Participating in this competition will help applicants enhance their photography skills, acquire recognization for their talent and get some meaningful projects. Apart from this, the program could be your chance to promote yourself in the photography world, put your skills to good use and set yourself apart from your peers who are also aiming this field to build a career. This competition is more than just winning some prizes. As a participant of this program, you will have a chance to showcase your talent to the world and polish those photography skills, develop some new ones, acquire a deeper insight into the photography industry and learn from your competitors. At a young age, it might be possible for the photographer who are finding their ways to get confused and lost in the crowd.
