alaskaWILD is the most prestigious annual juried photo exhibit featuring the natural beauty of Alaska and its wilderness. It is sponsored by the Alaska Society of Outdoor and Nature Photographers. The main goals of alaskaWILD are to celebrate the unique beauty and wildness of Alaska, and to promote local amateur and professional photographers. It is the only state wide juried exhibition solely dedicated to nature photography. Unlike many juried exhibits, the images in this exhibit are available for sale.
Each year the ASONP solicit images from all over the state of Alaska to be submitted for judging in five categories: Black and White, Creative, Fauna, Flora, and Landscape. A panel of three judges then selects the final images for the show. The judges also select a Best of Show Image, a Best of Category Image, and several images worthy of honorable mention. All selected images are promoted and sold through ASONPS’s PhotoShelter site, as well as compiled into the alaskaWILD photobook.
Part of the mission of the ASONP is to promote self-improvement in the art of outdoor and nature photography, and to assist photographers market and sell their work. ASONP is accomplishing its mission through alaskaWILD. Through alaskaWILD, professional, amateur and beginning photographers have the opportunity to give people around Alaska and the Lower 48 a greater appreciation of the Great Land of Alaska.
