Photography Contest Categories.

In selecting the categories for this year’s contest, Audubon Community Nature Center looked to its hometown for inspiration.

  • Naturally Funny: Jamestown, New York, is the birthplace of Lucille Ball and home to the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and the National Comedy Center. In tribute to our First Lady of Comedy, one of the 2019 Nature Photography Contest categories is Naturally Funny: Wildlife photos that make us smile or laugh.
  • Field Guide Worthy: Jamestown is also the birthplace of Roger Tory Peterson and home of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History. In honor of the premier naturalist of the 20th Century and the more than 50 Peterson Field Guides, the second contest category is Field Guide Worthy: Photos that could be used for identification in a field guide.
  • Naturally Beautiful: The third category is an opportunity to let the world see where you think of as home. Naturally Beautiful: Show us the beautiful landscapes where you live.
