Photo Contest

This event celebrates photographers in the NABS/ASLO community and also encourages contributions to the NABS/ASLO Image Library for educational, not-for-profit use. Winning photos (previously submitted) will be used in the creation of a non-profit calendar to be sold as a fundraiser for student awards. The contest is co-sponsored by Freshwaters Illustrated, who will help coordinate the exhibition and will also donate additional prizes for winning photos. Photos will be located in the Santa Fe Convention Center lobby. Voting will take place by secret ballot at the photo display throughout the week

This year we are very excited to offer a joint NABS/ASLO 18-month calendar. Photographs in the calendar were selected from those voted top photographs from the NABS photo contest and ASLO’S Image Library.  All photos were taken by either NABS or ASLO members. Calendars are $17.00 and will be on sale during the meeting at the Fresh Waters Illustrated booth Monday through Wednesday and then will be available at the conference registration desk thereafter.  Proceeds from the sale of the calendars support student awards.
