Glennie Nature Salon for 2020

It’s time to be looking through your best nature images to submit for the Glennie Nature Salon.

The images above by Charise Tanner and Marek Pawlowicz won awards last year.

Unlike other competitions, entries are submitted by clubs rather than directly by individuals. Each club is allowed to submit 10 images. We are collecting entries through 31 January and then will conduct judging to select the 10 that we will submit.

Upload your entries here.

The club can entry to Glennie can include more more than two images per individual. However, you may upload up to 5 images for our selection process.

More specifics about how we will select the club entries will be forthcoming.

Read the announcement below for detailed requirements.

Contact Craig Shier for questions about your entries and the club process.


The Merrimack Valley Camera Club is pleased to announce the 39th George W. Glennie Nature Salon photographic competition. The salon is open to camera clubs and photographic associations worldwide. Last year, over 60 clubs submitted images for competition.

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.
The Glennie presents awards to both club and individual images.  Club awards include:
  • Top 5 Clubs Total Score

Individual image awards include:
  • Best of Show
  • Best Wildlife
  • Best of Category (Birds, Invertebrates, Reptiles, Amphibians, Mammals, Marine & Freshwater Life, Botany, and Landscape)
  • Subcategory and Honor Awards depending upon number of entries.
