The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) recently announced its eleventh annual watershed photo contest.
Photo submissions are being accepted between now and April 11. Photographers of all skill levels, ages 13 and up, are encouraged to participate and to have their photos featured in CBF’s award-winning publications.
The contest is intended to promote awareness of conservation issues related to the Chesapeake Bay and local rivers and streams. CBF is seeking images from around the watershed that illustrate the beauty, benefits, and bounty of the Bay and its rivers and streams.
This year, concepts and topics for photographers to consider include beauty, recreation, history and legacy, and agriculture. Photos can illustrate a wide variety of topics but must include water in the photo.
Winners will receive a cash award ranging from the top prize of $500.00 to $100.00. The first-prize winner also receives a premium spot in the CBF 2015 calendar.
Contest rules and details are available online at cbf.org/photocontest.
