PRESS RELEASE (posted on front page)

Nature's Best Photography Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of this year's Ocean Views Photography Contest!

Selected from more than 10,000 images, 29 photos have been selected as winners and highly honored. All winning images will be published in the next issue of Nature's Best Photography magazine due out later this month. If you were not selected as a winner in this year's contest, we encourage you to continue with the great work! We received so many excellent photos, which made our selection process very difficult!

Our next Ocean Views competition will open for entries in June 11-December 6, 2010. Don't forget that our Best Backyards contest begins May 28 to September 30.

We appreciate your ongoing support and welcome your thoughts, suggestions, and participation in making this one of the best ocean photography competitions in the world. Thank you for entering this years' competition—the submissions were excellent—and we look forward to seeing more of your photography in the future

All the best,
The Nature's Best Team
