BugBlitz Nature Photography Contest

Now accepting submissions for the Fall 2018 BugBlitz Youth Photography Contest

Do you enjoy taking nature photographs, especially of insects? Are you new to nature photography? Either way, this contest is for you! Youth are encouraged to submit photographs for the KU NHM’s Fall 2018 BugBlitz photography contest by the deadline of November 11 at 5pm CST. We highly encourage those who came to the night-time BugBlitz on September 14, 2018, to submit photographs.

Submissions will be divided into two categories:

  • Ages 12 and Under
  • Ages 13 to 18

Submitted photographs will be judged, according to a standardized rubric, by a team of two professional photographers and two museum staff members. Winners will be announced by December 1, 2018, and winning photographs will be highlighted on the museum’s website and social media accounts. All submitted images will be displayed in the Kansas Union (Dining Area) from December 1, 2018, to February 1, 2019.
