ICPA – Deadline Ahead

ICP Awards

Don’t delay. Get on it quickly!

This is my personal invitation to enter the 2012 International Conservation Awards (ICP Awards), if you haven’t already. The deadline for this biennial competition is February 29, includes Leap Day this year. So you have only two more weeks to enter your best work.

I started this INVITATIONAL in 1997 with support of photographers and sponsors dedicated to conservation photography. AND I’m so proud that this wonderful program, with its success, has spun off into its own organization, with incredible support by the Burke Museum of History and Culture where a first-class, 5-month exhibit of selected images will take place this summer starting on June 30. The Burke exhibit will be followed by a national tour of the some of top images selected for the program.

Please visit the ICP Awards website for complete information and to enter:

An impressive collection of jurors is on hand to begin reviewing your submissions on March 1. Students, check out the Student Category. This 2012 program follows the huge success of the 2010 program in which there were record numbers of international participants and record numbers of visitors to the Burke Museum exhibit.

Thank you,
Art Wolfe

Snowy Owls III

BLOG: Snowy Owls Feb 2012 – Images by Art Wolfe

I just finished my weekend workshop called “Composing Effective Images – Field Edition”. I love teaching and inspiring others. In the process of the workshop, I get inspired, too.

I just had to make one more trek up to the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in British Columbia yesterday.
I know I am indulging a bit with the Snowy Owls, but in all fairness, they are magnificent creatures and this event happens so infrequently, that I just can’t resist.

Thank you to all the students this weekend for your participation, enthusiasm and inspiration. Enjoy this days shooting.
