2020 Nature’s Best National Parks Photo Contest call for entries

In 1872, United States President, Ulysses Grant, signed into law the world’s first national park - Yellowstone. Wyoming, Montana and Idaho covers more than two million acres and is home to a vast variety of wildlife and wild lands where bison, bear, wolves, moose, elk, and many species of flora and fauna, roam free. This paved the way for the creation of the U.S. National Park Service in 1916.

U.S. National Parks' visitors from around the world are invited to share your BEST outdoor experiences and bring greater awareness to the preservation ands protection of nature's heritage. You are invited to send your own special memories from park adventures.

The competition is open to worldwide entrants. If you have travelled to a U.S. National Park and have images and videos to share, you can join them in assembling a public record of this diverse ecosystem.

You are invited to enter your best photos and videos in the 2020 Nature's Best National Parks Contest, who are offering cash prizes and awards.
