June 15th is the annual Nature Photography Day, a day when the National Wildlife Federation and other groups encourage people to take a camera and snap some photos of nature at its best.

To help you get started, click here for a collection of tips from the editors at National Wildlife magazine. Suggestions include topics from how to photograph flowers or small animals to how to get a sharper image.

If you are feeling a little competitive, you can enter your nature photographs in National Wildlife Federation’s 40th annual photo contest. The contest offers cash prizes totaling more than $30,000, as well as other gifts to be awarded to winners from seven categories in three separate divisions: professional, amateur and youth.

Winners will be published on NWF’s website and a selection will appear in the December 2010 issue of National Wildlife magazine.

Click here to learn more and to enter the contest. The deadline for entering the contest is July 6.

If you are interested in entering, you might want to watch a video with the federation’s David Mizejewski. “How to Win a Nature Photo Contest” can be watched here.

Photo galleries of last year’s winners and honorable mentions can also be found on the National Wildlife Photozone website.
