Calling all photographers!

The Nature Conservancy's annual photo contest has begun, and some stunning entries have already started to flow in. Finalists will be selected later this year before a round of online voting and the winner will have their photo featured on the cover of the environmental group's 2015 calendar.

Have any stellar nature photography of your own? The contest will be accepting entries until September 9, and you can submit them directly through the organization's website, or on Instagram and Flickr. But for now, take a look at some breathtaking photos from this year's contest, and past winners, below.
