It’s time to showcase the natural beauty of Whidbey and Camano islands with your best outdoor photographs.

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust’s annual photo contest is underway and photo submissions are being accepted.

Everyone is invited to participate in the contest, which is now in its fifth year. The contest opened March 1 and the final day to submit photos is Sunday, July 8. Each participant may submit up to five photos.

All photos must be taken outdoors on Whidbey or Camano islands. However, they don’t have to be taken on a property protected by the Land Trust. Images that showcase island landscapes or wildlife are most desired.

Winning photos will be featured in the 2019 Whidbey Camano Land Trust Calendar. At least 12 feature photos will be selected, one for each month. Twelve smaller photos also will appear in the calendar.

Photographers whose images are selected will receive special recognition and at least one complimentary calendar.

Last year, 850 calendars were printed and sold at locations throughout Island County. The 2018 calendar cover photo was a Short-eared Owl in the snow taken by Camano Island’s Matt Ferguson.

Visit www.wclt.org to learn more about how the contest works and to view photo requirements.

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust is a nonprofit organization that actively involves the community in protecting, restoring and appreciating the important natural habitats and resource lands that support the diversity of life on our islands and in the waters of Puget Sound.
