Enter Your Wildlife Images in "Big Picture: Natural World Photography Competition"

Enter Your Wildlife Images in "Big Picture: Natural World Photography Competition"

There are a lot of contests out there this time of year, but I wanted to take a minute to bring the California Academy of Sciences Big Picture: Natural World Photography Competition to your attention. Now through March 31, 2014, Cal Academy is inviting photographers to enter their wildlife and conservation images to this competition for a chance to win a share of the $20,000 in cash and photography gear prizes.

I'm a huge fan of the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco (loyal San Franciscan here), so I just had to share this contest with you guys.

So who do you have to impress to win? The list of judges is rather impressive:
