The 2013 Save the Bay Photo Contest's third-place winner. While kayaking on the upper St. Mary's River estuary, photographer Chris Tanner observed this Great Blue Heron perched on a decaying bird blind. Photo by Chris Tanner.
Our 2014 Photo Contest is coming to a close! You have just four days left to submit your photos of the Bay and its rivers and streams. We want to see what inspires you across the Chesapeake watershed—from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Eastern Shore. All photos must include water from the Chesapeake Bay or river or stream within the Bay watershed.
A panel of CBF employees will judge entries on subject matter, composition, focus, lighting, uniqueness, and impact. The public will also have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite photo in the Viewers' Choice Gallery. Winners receive cash prizes!
- First Prize: $500
- Second Prize: $250
- Third Prize: $150
- Viewers' Choice: $100
All winners will also receive a one-year CBF membership and will have their photos displayed on CBF's website, in CBF's e-newsletters, and in CBF's Save the Bay magazine. (The first-prize photo will be featured in CBF's 2015 calendar.) All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by May 30, 2014.
All photos must be received by 5 p.m., Friday, April 11. So snap to it (no pun intended) and send us your photos!
