From Our Friends – Contest Winners

Our friends send us many images of nature spirits, and of their use of our products in their own #CrystalLife. We hold monthly contests on Instagram and on our website, as well as a large, more formal annual Nature Spirit Photo contest. This Gallery contains the winning images from these events. You can, if you wish, when submitting a photo to us, fill out this Photo Entry Form which formally indicates that you retain the rights to your own photograph, we simply have the right to show it on our website and in social media. However, these rights are understood and are honored by us even without the form being signed. Our contest year runs from October through September,

Photo Contest 2014

This year many of our participants were connecting with tree and rock life forms.  Our winners and finalists have photographed a diverse range of nature spirit energy. From the energy of Mary to a resting giant, there is much to see and appreciate. Our photo contest for 2014 had over 350 images submitted!


Photo Contest 2013

There were over 750 photos submitted for this year’s contest. These included images submitted throughout the year to the From Our Friends blog as well as entries specific to the contest. The Winners and Honorable Mentions are those who have most clearly demonstrated the goal of the contest –  to show the existence of life forms of other realms who co-exist on earth with humans, or of natural phenomena beyond the range of that normally perceived by humans.  (Honorable Mentions shown alphabetically.)


Photo Contest 2012

The winning images in the adult and youth divisions spanned the field from orbs to ghosts, fairies, interdimensional entities, and rock and tree spirits.



Photo Contests 2011

There were two contests this year – our regular photo contest and an additional one to locate an orb image to be included in Atala’s book Nature Spirits, Spirit Guides and Ghosts.

Photo Contest 2010 – Adults

Our first photo contest attracted experts working in the field of paranormal photography, to amateurs wondering what that object was in their photo!


Photo Contest 2010 – Youth

Youth often get images of fairies and nature spirits in their images because they are still close to those gentler worlds.


Youth Photographs

For a number of years Crystal Life sponsored a group for youth with extended perceptions. Here are some of the photos taken at summer photo outings.
