NATURE is searching for the world's ugliest animal.

Join our new PBS NATURE Flickr group (You must be a Flickr member), and enter for a chance to win a free DVD of "The Beauty of Ugly" or receive an honorable mention on our Web site.

For more info on judging and prizes click here. After joining this group, upload your ugliest animal photos to the pool, enter the name and date the photo was taken, set the correct license and tag the photos "pbsuglynature." It's that easy! For a more detailed explanation of how to enter the contest, click here.

In order to see the latest ugliest animal entries in the slideshow on the left, you must be logged into your Flickr account.

Deadline for submission:
November 22, 2007 12pm EST

Winner announced:
November 30, 2007

Before entering the contest, please read the contest rules.

How to Enter:

To enter the contest, you'll need a Flickr account. Then, follow these steps:
  1. Join the PBS NATURE Flickr group.

  2. Upload your ugly animal photo to your Flickr account.

  3. Tag the photo with the tag "pbsuglynature" -- This step will make sure the judges will see it, and will add it to the photo stream on our site.

  4. Enter a description, telling us the name of the animal and the date when the photo was taken. The photo must be of an animal in order to be considered. Do not upload illegal content of any kind.

  5. You must set the license for your photo as either "Attribution-NonCommercial Creative Commons" or "Attribution Creative Commons" (What does this mean?). To do this, open the photo from your Flickr account. To the right of your photo, you'll see a heading that says "Additional Information." Below it is the current license setting for this photo. If it says "All rights reserved," you'll need to click edit and change the license in order to be eligible to participate in the contest. If you want, it's also possible to change the license on all of your Flickr photos at once.

  6. Add your ugly animal photo to the PBS NATURE Flickr group, to share it with NATURE fans everywhere. (How do I do this?) The photo must be added to our Flickr group in order to be considered.
Judging and Prizes

Five NATURE producers will judge which photo is, in their opinion, the ugliest animal photo. The winner will receive a free copy of "The Beauty of Ugly" on DVD and will be posted on our ugliest animal slideshow. Four other submissions will receive honorable mention on the NATURE Web site and will be posted on our ugliest animal slideshow.

Contest Rules:
  • You must be the creator of the photo you submit, and you may not submit copyrighted material. See Step 5 of "How to Enter" for more details.
  • By submitting your photo, you give permission for us to display your image on the NATURE Web site.
  • Employees of PBS, Thirteen/WNET, and their families are not eligible to participate in the contest.
