NC wildlife and nature enthusiasts: We need your photos for a one-of-a-kind mosaic project!

NCWF PhotomosaicNorth Carolina Wildlife Federation is inviting anyone who loves North Carolina’s wildlife and wild places to be part of our “Give Thanks for Wildlife” photomosaic project. This statewide community project is a chance for all nature enthusiasts, anglers, birders, hunters, gardeners, paddlers and hikers to showcase the many ways in which you enjoy the outdoors of North Carolina – from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks.

Participating in this unique art project is free and simple! Just email your digital photos and we will handle the rest. Be sure to read the guidelines and rules below. Submitted photos will be joined together to create a one-of-a-kind mosaic in the shape of our great state of North Carolina. The photomosaic will be on display on Nov. 19 at the Give Thanks for Wildlife event, where it will be raffled off with all proceeds benefitting NCWF. We’ll also be selling items with the final image that will make great holiday gifts!

Don’t miss this chance to be part of a unique art project that celebrates the wildlife and wild places of NC. Whether it’s hiking a trail, gardening in your backyard, paddling on a lake or fishing in a stream, we hope you’ll help us celebrate the season of gratitude and giving by emailing your photo today.

Deadline for submitting photos is Friday, Oct. 21, 2016.
