Save The Bay Photo Contest

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation 2011 Photo Contest
This year's contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers, and CBF is seeking photographs that illustrate the positive aspects of the Bay and its rivers and streams. We want to see your vision of the Bay region—from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from the Shenandoah Mountains to the Eastern Shore. Images depicting people, wildlife, recreation, and farms within the watershed will all be considered. All photos must include water from the Chesapeake Bay or a river, stream, creek, or other body of water inside the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Official judging will be conducted by a panel of CBF employees who will judge entries on 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. All winners will receive a cash award:
  • First Prize: $500
  • Second Prize: $250
  • Third Prize: $150
  • Viewers' Choice: $100   
In addition, the first-prize photograph will appear in CBF's 2012 calendar. And that's not all:  All winners will also receive a one-year membership to CBF and will have their photos displayed on CBF's website, in a CBF e-newsletter, and in CBF's Save the Bay magazine.

Submissions must be mailed to CBF and postmarked between March 14, 2011 and April 15, 2011.  There is a $10 entry fee for up to three photographs, and $3 for each additional photo.  All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by May 27, 2011.
