Nature Image

The Merrimack Valley Camera Club is pleased announce the 33rd George W. Glennie Nature Salon photographic competition.  We hope that New England Camera Club Council will share this announcement with your member camera clubs.

The salon is a club level competition and open to camera clubs and photographic associations worldwide.  Last year, almost 100 clubs submitted images for competition.

This is a premier, international all-nature club competition of digital images known for its diversity of subjects which range from animals to botany to landscapes.  In the animal categories, birds and mammals are usually well represented, but each year about a third of the entries are invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians or marine & freshwater life.
The Glennie presents awards to both club and individual images.  Club awards include:
  • Top 5 Clubs Total Score
  • Top 5 Clubs Diversity Award - (best score from club's top six categories, club must have entries in at least 6 of the 8 categories)
Individual image awards include:
  • Best of Show
  • Best Wildlife
  • Best of Category (Birds, Invetebrates, Reptiles, Amphibians, Mammals, Marine & Freshwater Life, Botany, and Landscape)
  • Additional Subcategory and Honor Awards based upon number of entries.  (Last year we had 23 subcategories.)
