Cheyenne - Wyoming Wildlife magazine wants to see your best outdoor photography. Submissions for the 2018 photo contest are being accepted online until Nov. 19. Winning entries will be announced in the February 2019 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.

“This is the 48th year of the photo contest and still we are seeing increasingly innovative and impressive shots,” said Amy Bulger, editor of Wyoming Wildlife. “With such diverse categories and subjects in Wyoming, our judges are looking forward to another competitive contest.”

  • Wildlife (wild mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects)
  • Scenic (in which landmarks, scenery or inanimate objects are prominent)

  • Flora (wildflowers, foliage, fruiting bodies or other parts of plants).
Photographers should pay close attention to photo size and type when submitting. Photos must be in JPEG or TIFF format and at least 5100 pixels in their longest dimension This is the equivalent of 17 inches at 300 resolution on the longest side.

“Photographers using any photography equipment have a chance at placing,” said Justin Joiner, Wyoming Wildlife creative director. “In the last few years, our judges have seen some top-notch entries using cell phones that can compete with some of the top cameras on the market.”

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.
