The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is accepting entries for the 2018 Save The Bay Photo Contest now through April 6.
There have been no winners from Pennsylvania for the last two years even though Pennsylvania is the biggest part of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Let’s get out there and get snapping!
Open to both amateur and professional photographers, CBF’s annual Photo Contest highlights the beauty and character of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed’s rivers and streams through the eyes of those who enjoy them and illustrate the positive aspects of the Bay and the rivers and streams throughout the its watershed.
Images depicting people, wildlife, recreation, and farms within the watershed will all be considered, however 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.
Prizes include: First Prize: $500; Second Prize: $250; Third Prize: $150; and Viewers’ Choice: $100.
In addition, the first-prize photograph will appear in CBF’s 2019 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.
All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by June 29, 2018.
