This month’s challenge is "Surviving Winter”

Many of us have had a rough winter with unusually cold temperatures and heavy snow. But that’s nothing compared to what animals have to deal with in the wild for months on end, year after year. This month’s contest focuses on animals toughing it out in winter weather, where survival can’t be taken for granted.

In the spirit of the theme, animals should be wild only, no captives, and the photo should be obviously taken in winter.

Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.

These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.

The winning image will be added to the Wildlife Contest Winners Gallery. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!
