As of Thursday, 104 photos had been entered in the inaugural Oregon Outdoors Photo Contest.

Photos can be entered in three categories:

1) Wildlife, which can include any nondomesticated animal photographed in the wild in Oregon.

2) Landscapes, including forests, mountains, deserts, ocean, rivers, lakes or any other landscape that depicts the beauty of Oregon.

3) People in Nature, which can include hikers, skiers, rafters, bikers or any other activity that shows people — alone or in groups — outdoors in Oregon.

It's an online contest, so entries must be uploaded to our contest website at www.mailtribune.com/outdoorscontest.

The entry deadline is 5 p.m., Friday, July 26.

Three winning photos chosen by our expert judges, along with a People's Choice winner, will be published Friday, Aug. 9, in Oregon Outdoors.

To enter, fill out a registration form and upload your photos on our website at www.mailtribune.com/outdoorscontest

Please note: only photographs taken in Oregon are eligible. Complete rules are listed on the contest website.
