Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

2013 Save the Bay Photo Contest

chesapeake2013 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.

This is a contest to promote awareness of conservation issues relating to the Chesapeake Bay. Contestants will take and submit photographs that include a body of water from within the Chesapeake Bay watershed, such as a pond, lake, stream, creek, river, inlet, or the Bay itself. CBF is seeking images that illustrate the beauty, benefits, and bounty of the Bay and its watershed. Concepts and topics to consider are:

Beauty: scenic shots of regional waterways and wildlife from all seasons and parts of the watershed.

Recreation: people of all ages using local waterways for fishing, sailing, canoeing, swimming, etc.

History and Legacy: images that convey the value of the Bay and its rivers and streams in shaping the past, present, and future; depict multiple generations at work and play on the Bay; or illustrate the importance of leaving a legacy of clean, safe water for future generations.

Agriculture: crop and livestock farming, agricultural conservation practices, farmers’ markets, etc.
