National Wildlife Photo Contest
Enter your photos for a chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes, get exposure, and support the National Wildlife Federation’s work to protect wildlife. We are looking for striking color and black and white images of nature—on land, in the air and beneath the water’s surface—from anywhere in the world. These images may show animal behaviour, portraits of wildlife in natural habitat, plant life, natural landscapes, or people interacting with nature.
Photographers must enter each image in one of the following categories. The same photo cannot be entered in more than one category. If you wish to move a photo to another category after you have uploaded, simply change that photo’s category on the upload page prior to the contest deadline. Judges reserve the right to switch images to other categories.
