Images of Nature is a “nature only” exhibit and competition. All entries must reflect natural settings and situations devoid of the “hand of man” with one exception. CONTINUING THIS YEAR – man-made influences will be allowed in the Eagle Creek Park category as long as they are NOT the main subject of the photo (see category descriptions). Entries in any other category that include man-made features or influences (i.e., buildings, fences, boats, farm fields and domestic animals or plants) are not eligible and will NOT be accepted. All entries must be made from negatives, transparencies, or digital files.
