The Glennie Annual Nature Salon

By Pete Guion

Hello everyone. The Glennie annual nature salon competition is coming up once again. Time to go through your photos, find all your best nature photos, and show them just how good our photographers are.

The categories are the same as last year – Birds, Mammals, Invertibrates, Reptiles, Amphibians, Marine & Freshwater Life, Botany, and Landscapes.

We are allowed to submit up to 10 images in total, with no more than 2 by any given photographer (the photographer limit is across any and all clubs he or she may belong to!).

To make sure we have a good turnout, each member is limited to no more than 2 entries *per category*, not to exceed 10 photos in total. Any photo that meets the definition of any of the above categories can be entered, including any photos that have been submitted previously as long as that photo has never been submitted to the Glennie competition itself.* (I.E. – it was in the voting pool to decide what to send but was not elected for submission to the actual Glennie competition.) Submission or earning of awards to any of the club’s regular monthly competitions is irrelevant.

The dates are as follows:

  • Wednesday Jan 29th – Deadline for submission by club members for club selection
  • Sunday Feb 2nd – Glennie voting open for club members
  • Friday Feb 14th – Last day for club members voting’voting closes.


Voting for us will be done using our online galleries as in previous years. Photos will be randomized and anonymized. A ballot will be sent out with the link to the galleries when they are up and ready.

Please submit all photos to the NIH Camera Club email address ( using the following format:
