Cheyenne - Only one week remains to submit entries to the 2022 Wyoming Wildlife magazine annual photo contest. Photographers of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to submit their best shots by midnight Nov. 14. Winning entries and honorable mentions will be published in the February 2023 photo issue of Wyoming Wildlife

Contest rules and how to submit photos can be found on the magazine webpage. The grand-prize winner for the best overall photo will receive $600 and a $350 voucher for a print of their shot on metal, acrylic, gallery mount or other canvas donated by this year’s contest sponsor — Artizen Photo Printing of Cheyenne. Prizes also are given to first, second and third places, as well as honorable mention recognition in four categories:

  • Wildlife: Wild mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and arthropods. Priority will be given to species managed by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
  • Scenic: Landmarks, scenery or inanimate objects are prominent.
