CUSTER COUNTY – Submissions are now open for the 2022 Nebraskaland Magazine photo contest. With miles of winding rivers, wide-open vistas, and wildlife from border to border, Nebraska is a photographer’s paradise. Each year, the magazine celebrates the state’s beauty and recognizes the outstanding work of photographers across Nebraska during the annual contest.
There is no entry fee, and photographers of all ages and skill levels are invited to participate. Entrants should be aiming to capture and submit photos in the following categories: wildlife, which can range from mammals to birds, reptiles to fish, and everything else omitted, landscapes and landmarks, recreation, and flora, which could be wildflowers, foliage, fruits or parts of plants.
All photos must be taken in Nebraska. Submissions will be judged by Nebraskaland staff, and winning photos will be published in the March 2023 issue of the magazine. First through third place prizes will be awarded in all categories, and a Best in Show prize also will be awarded.
Photos may be submitted only via Instagram. To submit, use the hashtag #Nebraskland2022. Make sure your account is public so judges may view your photo. Submissions are open through January 1, 2023.
