New This Year!

On April 1, 2011, we're launching the photo contest website that will not only allow you to submit your images, but also showcase your photos alongside other entries from around the world.

Users will be able to share images and vote for their favorites, with the photo receiving the most online votes winning a new prize--the People's Choice Award. The winning photo will be published in National Wildlife magazine along with the other contest winners.


A total of more than $20,000 in cash prizes and other gifts will be awarded to the top entries selected by the editors in seven categories. Two $5,000 grand prizes; first prizes will be awarded in each category and in youth division; second prizes will be awarded in each category and in youth division.  Winners will be published in the December issue of National Wildlife.
