Nebraskaland Journal photograph contest underway | Recreation


The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is accepting entries for the 2022 Nebraskaland Magazine Photo Contest through Thursday, January 1, 2023.

With miles of winding rivers, sweeping vistas, and border-to-border wildlife, Nebraska is a photographer’s paradise.

Each year, Nebraskaland Magazine celebrates the beauty of the state and recognizes the outstanding work of photographers across Nebraska during this annual photo contest.

Photographers of all ages and experience levels are invited to submit photos in four categories:

 Wildlife – wild mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, arthropods

 Scenic – emphasizing landmarks, landscapes, or inanimate objects

 Recreation – People who enjoy the great outdoors through hunting, fishing, hiking, backpacking, skiing, or other outdoor activities

 Flora – Wildflowers, foliage, fruiting bodies, or other plant parts

All photos must be taken in Nebraska. Submissions will be judged by Nebraskaland staff and the winning photos will be published in the March 2023 issue of Nebraskaland Magazine. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded in all categories, and a Best in Show prize will also be awarded.

Photos may only be submitted via Instagram. Use the hashtag #Nebraskaland2022 to submit. Make sure your account is public so judges can see your photo.
