2019 Photo Contest

With more than 2,000 entries, the 2019 Nebraskaland Magazine Photo Contest drew a record number of stunning images from your fellow Nebraska photographers in the categories of Wildlife, Flora, Scenic, and Recreation.

The Nebraskaland Magazine staff found it difficult to pare down the excellent images – especially the Best of Show winner, which went to Eric Wellman and his image, “Perseverance.”

We thank everyone who participated and made this exciting feature possible in our magazine. We look forward to seeing more of your great photographs in next year’s contest.
Keep shooting.
