The 2015 Wildlife Refuge Photography Contest is accepting entries until 9 p.m. Eastern time on November 15, 2015. The contest, sponsored by the National Wildlife Refuge Association, is open to amateur and professional photographers who are legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia and are 18 years or older at time of entry, except for Contest judges and employees of the Sponsor and of the Contest Partners, their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, and advertising, promotion and production agencies and their immediate families and members of their households.
This is your chance to showcase the beauty and diversity found on America’s national wildlife refuges. Images can feature the array of species and scenes found on wildlife refuges—including birds, mammals, insects, fish, people and landscapes.
You can submit up to five images for only $25. How can you not enter?
Now, imagine what it will be like when we finally have a Wildlife Conservation Stamp photo contest yearly for our stamp image, with thousands of entries, each entrant submitting their photo along with their $125 entry fee (the current fee to enter the Federal Duck Stamp Contest). Those proceeds would easily pay for the administration of the contest and printing of the stamps, most likely with monies left over to support our National Wildlife Refuge System!
