Message from the Director Nature's Best Photography Updates

We are now reviewing more than 30,000 entries received in the Nature's Best International Awards 2020. Thank you to all who entered during these uncertain times of world health and global economic challenges.
We remain positive for the future and see these entries as a way to refresh our view of nature and the wonderful, calming celebration it brings. As we go through the contest categories with our judges and select semi-finalists, we will email entrants to request high-res images for the next round of judging.
Are you taking photos during this time of limited travel? Be sure to enter your best shots of flora and fauna taken close to home in the Nature's Best Backyards Photo Contest 2020 OPEN NOW!

It has been 25 years since our launch in 1995, and now we begin the next decade with ways to better support your efforts in the field. We want to reward your passion and purpose with funding through cash prizes, publication, and recognition. Whether you are traveling close to home or to the farthest reaches of the planet, we want to be part of your journey.

Celebrating the extraordinary talents and achievements of photographers, filmmakers, and storytellers from around the world has always been at the core of our mission at Nature’s Best Photography.

We have never wavered from our early commitment to maintain the highest standards in printing and presentation. In this modern world of evolving technology, we feel it is more important than ever before to enjoy the simplicity of a single moment in the wild or a compelling story revealed through video and narrative.

Since our very first year, Nature’s Best Photography magazine has won awards in design, use of photography, printing, and been regarded as one of the best reproductions of nature photography in the world.

Like you, our team is committed to motivating public awareness of nature through vivid documentation of the Earth. Our goal is to invite immediate and long-term engagement to make a difference in how we protect wildlife and wild places.

—My very best, Stephen Freligh, Executive Director, Nature's Best Photography
