Cash Prizes for Top Wildlife Photos

Tuesday 6.18.2013 @ 10:17am | ImagesAZ | Community


From majestic bighorns to tiny hummingbirds, Arizona’s wildlife diversity is awe-inspiring. Arizona Game and Fish invites people to share their vision of the state’s wildlife by taking part in our annual photo contest.


Photographing wildlife is a test of skill, and Arizona abounds with opportunities to practice. A great egret spreading its wings for balance on a slender branch won last year’s contest. Such moments are happening all around us, all the time. By staying alert for that special wildlife encounter, anybody might capture an image worth the top prize.


The best in show and 12 first-place winners will be published in the 2014 calendar issue of Arizona Wildlife Views magazine, Arizona’s award-winning magazine about wildlife and outdoor recreation. Entries will be accepted through Aug. 2 at 5 p.m. through email or file-sharing online. As always, the contest is free to enter.


The judging process is blind, meaning entries are assigned a number and evaluated anonymously. Photos are evaluated solely on creativity, photographic quality, effectiveness in conveying the unique character of the subject and whether or not submitted images meet basic size and formatting requirements.
