It cost $25 dollars to enter each picture and all the money will go back to the Wildcat Glades Nature Center. The magazine has been able to raise more than $3,000 over the years.
Judges say picking the winner was tough.
The winning picture for this years contest is this eagle picture by Mike Ritzman from Joplin. He took this shot near Shoal Creek. You can see this picture and the other winners in the March issue of the "Show Me the Ozarks" magazine.
