The Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s (CBF) 14th annual watershed photo contest is now underway. Photo submissions are being accepted between now and April 5. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate to win cash prizes from $100 to $500 and to have their photos featured in CBF’s award-winning publications.
CBF is seeking photographs that illustrate the positive aspects of the Bay and its rivers and streams. They want to see your vision of the Bay region—from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from the Shenandoah Mountains to the Eastern Shore. Images depicting people, wildlife, recreation and farms within the watershed will all be considered. All photos must include water from the Chesapeake Bay or a river, stream, creek, or other body of water in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
All winners will receive a one-year membership to CBF, and winning photos may be displayed on CBF’s website, in a CBF e-newsletter, in CBF’s 2019 calendar, and in CBF’s award-winning magazine, Save the Bay.
Judging will be conducted by a panel of CBF employees on the basis of subject matter, composition, focus, lighting, uniqueness and impact. The public will also be able to vote online for their favorite photo in the Viewers’ Choice Gallery, starting April 15. Last year the judges considered more than 1,000 entries. Participation in the Viewers’ Choice Award was outstanding too, with more than 2,400 votes cast.
Contest rules and details are available online at cbf.org/photocontest.
