Submissions for the 2021 Wyoming Wildlife magazine annual photo contest are being accepted online until midnight Nov. 15. Winning entries will be published in the February 2022 photo issue of Wyoming Wildlife

“Anyone — amateur or professional — can enter his or her images taken in Wyoming, and this issue is a chance to not only showcase great photography but also the amazing wildlife and scenery found throughout the state,” said Tracie Binkerd, magazine editor.

In addition to being published in the magazine, the grand-prize winner for the best overall photo will receive $600 and a $350 voucher for a print of their shot on metal, gallery mount or other canvas at Artizen Photo Printing in Cheyenne. Prizes are also offered for first, second and third places in each of the four photo categories. Honorable mentions will also be recognized.

Contestants can submit up to 10 photographs; the maximum size for each is 9 MB. Each must represent one of the following categories:

  • Wildlife —  wild mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects
  • Scenic —  landmarks, scenery or inanimate objects are prominent
  • Recreation —  people enjoying the outdoors through hunting, fishing, hiking, backpacking, skiing or other outdoor activities
  • Flora —  wildflowers, foliage, fruiting bodies or other parts of plants

Submissions are accepted online only. Photos must have been taken in Wyoming and cannot have been previously submitted to or taken on assignment for Wyoming Wildlife. Employees of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Wyoming Game and Fish Commissioners and their immediate families are ineligible. Photographers are encouraged to practice ethical photography, keeping an appropriate distance and respecting animals and their habitats.
