Enter CBF's 2015 Save the Bay Photo Contest
CBF's annual photo contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers. This year we have added a new category specifically for high school students.
We are seeking photographs that illustrate the positive aspects of the Bay and its rivers and streams. We want to see your vision of the Bay region—from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from the Shenandoah Mountains to the Eastern Shore. Images depicting people, wildlife, recreation, and farms within the watershed will all be considered. 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. All winners will receive a cash award:
- First Prize: $500
- Second Prize: $250
- Third Prize: $150
- Viewers' Choice: $100
- High School Student Leadership Award: a 32 gigabyte iPad® mini*
In addition, the first-prize photograph will appear in CBF's 2016 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.
Entries must be submitted to CBF between March 9, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. EST and April 10, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. EST. All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by May 29, 2015.
