National Wildlife’s 46th Annual Photo Contest

Continuing a long tradition of showcasing some of the world’s best nature photography, our 46th annual contest opens for entries on January 9, 2017.

Prizes: Experienced judges will select winners, awarding a grand prize of $5,000 and cash prizes to first- and second-place winners in each of seven categories. Winners will also be published either in print or online and receive other recognition.

Categories: Baby Animals, Birds, Mammals, Landscapes and Plants, Backyard Habitats, Other Wildlife, People in Nature.

Consider donating: Photographers retain ownership and rights to their images, though we encourage you to consider donating some of your images to the National Wildlife Federation to help us save the world’s treasured wildlife species and their habitats.
