The 2013 Bob Jones Nature Center Photography Contest

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of their photo contest, Bob Jones Nature Center (BJNC) is partnering with Southlake Style to recognize the best photos taken at the city’s well-known nature center and preserve. The image judged “Best in Show” will be prominently featured in Southlake Style so don’t miss this great opportunity. Other division winning photos will be featured in a future issue of the magazine. As always, the winning photos will be on public display at the Bob Jones Nature Center and then at the Southlake Public Library.

This 5-division contest is open to photographers of all skill levels. The 2 divisions for children are: age 12 and under, and ages 13-19. The 3 adult divisions are novice intermediate, and advanced, based on skill level and experience. Entry fees help support the BJNC environmental and educational mission so your participation matters. Submit your photos the week of March 11 through March 16.
