This Week in the Watershed
What's Bill Seeing in the Field: A Sure Sign of Spring

Photo of the Week: Save the Bay Photo Contest Now Open!


"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter."
—Ansel Adams 

Even if you're not the next Ansel Adams, we want to see your photos! Our 2016 Photo Contest is now open to both amateur and professional photographers. Show us your vision of 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 a river or stream within the Bay watershed.

Click here to submit your photo and enter to win a prize!

A panel of CBF employees will judge entries on subject matter, composition, focus, lighting, uniqueness, and impact. The public will 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 in various CBF publications, such as our website, e-newsletters, and magazine. The first-prize photo will be featured in CBF's 2017 calendar. All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by May 31, 2016.

So get outside and get inspired by the Chesapeake waters we all love. Don't forget to bring your camera. And hurry, the submission deadline is April 22.

We look forward to seeing your pictures!
