Watkins Nature Center Hosts Audubon Photography Awards Traveling Exhibit
RIVERDALE, MD – The Department of Parks and Recreation is bringing the Audubon Photography Awards Traveling Exhibit to Watkins Nature Center during the month of August for all ages.
Walk among the winning photographs selected from more than 5,500 entries that show birdlife at its most vivid, vulnerable, formidable, and elegant form. The photographs were published in the Summer 2017 issue of Audubon Magazine after photographers from 49 states and eight Canadian provinces submitted images in three categories: professional, amateur, and youth. A panel of five judges had the daunting task of sifting through the stunning images and grading them based on technical quality, originality, and artistic merit.
