The Nature's Best Photography Awards carry on the legacy of accomplished photographer and conservation advocate, Windland Smith Rice, for her unyielding support of emerging nature photographers worldwide. Windland began her alliance with Nature's Best Photography in 1999 when she won the Animal Antics category of the Awards competition. Soon, Windland became deeply involved in growing the NBP Awards program, volunteering her time, while both she and her family also generously supported this meaningful public engagement.

Sandra Windland "Wendy" Smith Rice (1970 - 2005) was known for her nature photography and conservation advocacy. She served on the NBP board and was the Master of Ceremonies for Nature's Best Photography Awards events. Windland's charismatic style motivated audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Windland's love for nature and photography was second only to her love for people and her legacy will fuel the passion of these artists for generations to come.

The Nature's Best Photography Fund
 was created to help support the NBP International Awards, which are open to photographers worldwide of all ages and all levels of experience.
