Sept. 27, 2016 – CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The North Carolina Wildlife Federation is inviting anyone who loves North Carolina’s wildlife and wild places to be part of a statewide photomosaic project that will showcase the many ways in which nature enthusiasts, anglers, birders, hunters, gardeners and paddlers enjoy the outdoors of North Carolina.

There is no charge to participate in the community photo project. Submitted photos will be joined together to create a mosaic in the shape of North Carolina. The photomosaic will be on display on Nov. 19 at the Give Thanks for Wildlife event, where it will be raffled off with all proceeds benefitting NCWF.

Photo submission guidelines and rules are outlined below. The deadline for submitting photos is Friday, Oct. 21, 2016.
