2017 Photo Contest


The Wildlife in Focus photo contest is held biennially in odd numbered years.

In our format, a professional or amateur photographer (or a team of 2 photographers) is paired with a participating landowner forming a partnership. Dates for the contest are announced well in advance of the contest period. All fees must be received in full by our office prior to the beginning date of the contest for eligibility. For reference, click on the 2017 General Rules to your left. These are the only rules. Unlike previous contests, the Work Flow for submitting your images will come later in a separate workbook.
