Attention, Nevada photographers! The 2015 Great Nevada Picture Hunt is about to get underway and we’ve made some changes!  For 38 years, we’ve highlighted the most beautiful images from around the Silver State, captured by local photographers. You don’t have to make your living shooting photos; you just have to love Nevada and her wonderful scenery and people. Winning entries will be published in the September/October 2015 issue and on our website.

NEW: This year, we will have 10 categories, and we’re changing our submission format to Flickrand we’re allowing a maximum of 10 photos per photographer (see the rules below). Photographs for this year’s picture hunt may be submitted for the following categories:

Rural town
Black & White
Long Exposure
Natural light
Mobile phone
