CBF photo contest now accepting entries
By Andy Thompson | March 13, 2012 | Posted In: Uncategorized

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has just started accepting submissions for its eighth annual watershed photo contest. Photo submissions are being accepted through April 13. Photographers of all skill levels (ages 13 and up) are eligible to win the top cash prize of $500 and have their photo featured in CBF’s publications. (The above photo of Elliott Island near Vienna, Md. was taken by Graham Slaughter.)

From the CBF release: The contest promotes awareness of conservation issues relating to the Chesapeake Bay and local rivers and streams. CBF is seeking images from around the watershed that illustrate the beauty, benefits, and bounty of the Bay and its rivers and streams. Photos can illustrate a wide variety of topics, but all MUST include water in the photo.

All winners will receive a cash award ranging from the top prize of $500 to $100. The first-prize winner also receives a premium spot in the CBF 2013 calendar. All winners will receive a one-year membership to CBF and will have their photos displayed on CBF’s website, in a CBF e-newsletter, in CBF’s 2013 calendar, and in CBF’s award-winning magazine, Save the Bay.

This year, concepts and topics for photographers to consider include beauty, recreation, history and legacy, and agriculture. Judging will be conducted by a panel of CBF employees on the basis of subject matter, composition, focus, lighting, uniqueness, and impact. The public will also be able to vote online for their favorite photo in the Viewers’ Choice Gallery.
