Your best wildlife photo could be published in Wyoming Wildlife magazine

Annual contest is open now

10/14/2019 7:36:03 PM

Cheyenne - Wyoming Wildlife magazine wants to see your best outdoor photography. Submissions for the 49th annual photo contest are being accepted online until midnight Nov. 25. Winning entries will be published in the February 2020 photo issue of Wyoming Wildlife. The grand-prize winner will receive $600 for the best overall photo and a $350 voucher for a print on metal, gallery mount or other canvas at Artizen Photo Printing. Prizes are also offered for first, second and third places in each of the four photo categories. Honorable mentions will also be recognized.

“After hearing from our readers, we’ve made changes to the photo size requirements for this year,” said Tracie Binkerd, editor of Wyoming Wildlife. “We don’t have a minimum size for entries — just a maximum. But, judges will consider the size and quality of the photo.” 

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
The magazine’s contest is expanding to include an additional contest in the spring of 2020. Winners from the second contest will be featured exclusively in the 2021 November calendar edition of Wyoming Wildlife. 
“With two photo contests, photographers have double the opportunity to submit their work to be featured,” said Patrick Owen, creative director for the magazine. “You do not need to be a professional photographer to be competitive.”

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.
