The Wildling is proud to present its annual photography competition, celebrating its 10th year! Photographers were encouraged to capture examples of nature’s magical ability to regenerate and thrive. All winning entries in the Adult and Junior Categories will be exhibited at the Wildling Museum in the summer of 2018 and on the Wildling website. Cash awards will be announced at the exhibition opening on August 4th. This year’s guest judge is Bill Dewey, whose extensively photographed the tri-counties through its many cycles of fire and regeneration. The wildfires that raged through the Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties this past year have left our landscape blackened and desolate. Though it may seem that nature has succumbed to the fire, it perseveres and regenerates. Wildlife, flowers, and greenery spring forth in a display of hope and rebirth.
