Nature’s Best Photography originated in the United States with ambitious goals to celebrate the beauty and diversity of nature through the art of photography and to use this vivid medium as a creative tool for encouraging greater public interest and involvement in outdoor enjoyment and conservation.
A robust Awards program evolved from this mission to become one of the most highly-respected nature photography competitions in the world and now run in exhibition partnership with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC.
“Promote photographic excellence amongst existing photographers”
“Attract new audiences to photography as an art form”
“Encourage an appreciation for and conservation of our natural heritage”
“Market the continent of Africa to a massive global audience”
