Winners will be featured in the upcoming August 2015 issue of Ranger Rick magazine
The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and its treasured children’s publication, Ranger Rick, are proud to announce the six winners of the "Your Best Shots" photo contest. The national competition selects eye-capturing, nature-themed images that best spread the magazine’s mission to inspire a love for wildlife and the natural world.
"Our winning images capture the beauty of wildlife with fresh eyes and extraordinary talent," said Mary Dalheim, editorial director for Ranger Rick and Ranger Rick Jr. magazines. "We’re proud of the winners and are excited to have our readers view such charming photos."
The "Your Best Shots" photo contest winners will be featured in the August 2015 issue of the magazine. Each winner will receive a certificate of recognition for their success and five copies of Ranger Rick magazine displaying their winning photos.
Young photographers from across the nation submit their images year-round to the publication, and three times a year, judges select the highest quality and most inspiring images. To participate, candidates must be 13 years of age or younger and be the sole producer of the winning photograph.
