Brookfield Zoo Photo Contest 2023
From butterflies to lions and snakes to macaws, Brookfield Zoo is a photographer’s paradise. So, grab your camera and head to the Zoo, where you might just capture a winning shot to enter in the annual digital Photo Contest. Professional photographers will judge the photos and choose the grand prize winner. Additionally, they will select their top seven picks in each of the following categories: mammals, birds, and reptiles/amphibians/invertebrates/fish. The public is being asked to then go to the zoo’s website and vote for first-, second-, and third-place winners in each of the three categories.
