We're calling again for your best wildlife photos! This mission is open to all members worldwide and will run until December 31 2018. The mission is only for spottings submitted in 2018. While pictures taken earlier than 2018 are eligible, the spotting must have been created in 2018. Please note that ineligible spottings will be removed. Winners will be announced for each organism category (with the exception of Pets). This year we wish to bring attention to the “h” in Noah (Networked organisms and habitats), and we want you emphasize Habitat in your images. Whether it is pristine, threatened or degraded, whether it is urban, rural, primary rainforest, reef or desert, whether you use wide angle macro, depth of field, multiple shots or any other technique or approach, show us some habitat in your shots. We will pick up an extra winner across all categories for the Best Organism in Habitat shot. The winners will be announced on Facebook and Twitter and will receive some serious bragging rights!
