Pollinator Photography Contest

June 4-18, 2018

To celebrate National Pollinator Week, we'll be generating some buzz for native bees and other pollinators with a Pollinator Photography Contest! Pollinators play an important role in our environment, but their work still remains highly elusive.

So take a break, go outside, and capture the wonders of pollination in action (hint: we mean more than just bees)! Submit your photo by June 18th by using the following link: https://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_25AzqngcSYj4Hgp

The competition is open to UCF students, faculty, and staff. Please make sure that you are submitting original works and that you are not disturbing any pollinator habitats in your quest for the perfect shot!

Note: Maximum two submissions per person

Prizes:
First, second, and third place winners (selected by a committee) will win pollinator themed prizes. More details to come.

*All submissions will be displayed on the Sustainable UCF website.
