NHACC 2023 Photo Contest

Use the link below to submit photos to NHACC for a chance to win $250.  

Do you love to take photos while you are out enjoying nature? If you like to capture nature’s beauty, please share your amazing photos with NHACC as part of our Water, Wetlands, and Wildlife in the Natural World photo contest. We are primarily looking for photographs that inspire the preservation of our natural environment.  You are encouraged to take photographs on conserved lands in or near your town, but they also may be made in other places such as your own backyard.

Entry form opens on June 1 and will close on September 8.

  • Three categories:  Kids 12 and under, Teens 13 – 18, and Adults 19 and up.

  • EACH Category will have a $250 award for first place, and a $50 award for runner up.

  • The registration fee is $10 per-person.

How to Enter: 
We will be using an on-line platform called ArtCall to host entries into the contest. Submit your photo HERE.

Winners will be awarded their prizes and their photos will be on display at NHACC”s Annual Meeting and Conference in November.

Local Conservation Commissions are challenged to encourage their residents to submit photos, and be the town with the most entries.  The winning NH town will receive a free ticket to the conference to invite anyone they wish, plus have the ability to use the visual content in their own social media and town websites. Jurors for contest are well known NH photographers.

There’s a goal beyond a fun contest. NHACC wants to encourage the public to get outdoors and spend some time reversing the “Nature Deficit” – a phenomenon created primarily by our over dependence on technology and screen-time, rather that outdoor play-time. So take those phones outside and use them to document and celebrate our natural environments. The University of New Hampshire has a Town Lands Map with a list of town properties. The public can also contact their Conservation Commissions and ask about conserved lands. Have fun and be creative!
