National Photo Month

Did you know that May is National Photo Month? Aspiring photographers, take advantage of these contests:

Smithsonian Magazine: From March 28 through November 30, 2017, Smithsonian Magazine invites photographers age 18 and up to enter in the following six contest categories: Natural World, Travel, People, The American Experience, Altered Images, and Mobile. Photographs must have been shot by the entrant since January 1, 2015.

National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year: $15 per entry. Must create an online National Geographic account (with an email address) to enter. Grand prize winner receives a 10-day trip for two to the Galapagos Islands. Categories include: Nature, Cities, and People.

The Nature Conservancy: A global photo contest. In celebration of the earth, their photo theme is “What’s Your Nature?” Deadline is May 31.

And since it’s also Finals Week, you might need a break to show off your artistic talent. Take a moment to snap a photo of how you study, and tag our library’s Instagram account! (@csnlibrary).

Here’s a few cool photos taken by our CSN librarians–one for each campus!

Interested in learning more about photography? We have photography books at any CSN campus library in the “TR” section (ask a librarian if you need help finding them), and online through our Safari Tech Books collection.
