Glennie Memorial Nature Salon

The Glennie Memorial Nature Salon is a nature photography competition (salon) hosted by the Merrimack Valley Camera Club since 1981. The salon is open to camera clubs worldwide. This is a premier, international all-nature club competition of digital images known for its diversity of subjects which range from animals to botany to landscapes. In the animal categories, birds and mammals are usually well represented, but each year about a third of the entries are invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians or marine & freshwater life.

Now Accepting 2019 Submissions

For anyone new to the George W. Glennie Nature Salon, here is a link to a presentation featuring the award winning images from the previous edition of the Glennie’s in 2016.

The video is worth checking out to get a feel for the types of images (subject matter, composition, etc.) they are looking for, and can even offer some inspiration for joining this year's contest.

The video is a bit long, but worth checking out if you have a chance – even if just a portion of it. There are also a few images included from Nassau County Camera Club members that had images accepted into the Salon.

Please review the following PDF containing the image rules and requirements needed to participate in the 2018 Glennie Memorial Nature Salon competition.

For those new to this competition, the salon is open to camera clubs and photographic associations worldwide. The Glennie Nature Salon is one of the premier, international all-nature club competitions, and is known for its diverse subjects that range from animals to botany to landscapes. It’s not uncommon to have members of over 100 different camera clubs participate in this competition, and our club will be competing again this year.

This serves as a call to all NCCC members who would like the chance to participate in this world-wide nature photo competition. I will be coordinating our club’s entries this year, so please send me your entries by no later than Sunday, February 10th. There is a strict limit of 2 images per NCCC member. Please send your entries to: Dave Curtin. When sending me your images, please be sure to write "Glennie Submissions" in the subject line, as that will help me to keep things organized.

We ask that you please review it carefully, as these guidelines will enable you to prepare your images per contest rules. We're limited to a total of 10 club entries for this competition. Those entries will be determined by the NCCC selection committee from the pool of all member entries received.

We hope that you’ll consider participating in this prestigious photo competition!
