The Montana Wilderness Association, the state's leading grassroots wilderness conservation organization, is once again asking photographers of all ages and ability levels to show the world what they love about Montana’s special wild places. Hurry up, the entry deadline for MWA’s sixth annual Picture Wild Montana photo contest is this Sunday!

The theme for the contest, Picture Wild Montana, has seven categories for contestants to compete:  Northwest Montana Region, Western Montana Region, Southwestern Montana Region, North-Central Montana Region, Central Montana Region, South-Central Montana Region and Eastern Montana Region. Photographers can submit up to five total photographs in any combination of categories and compete for prizes totaling over $1,000!

Three prizes will be awarded in each category: one for winner based on judging, one for winner based on popular vote, and one for the winner competing within the kindergarten through eighth grade age group. There will also be three grand prize winners decided in the same way from all photos submitted to the contest, regardless of category.

In addition to prizes, winning photos may also be selected to be published in the MWA 2015 calendar and/or other various MWA publications such as Wilderness Walks books, annual reports and newsletters.
