The Chesapeake Bay Foundation 2017 Save the Bay Photo Contest is now accepting entries through March 24.
CBF is celebrating its 50th year and they want to see how you see the Chesapeake Bay and all its rivers and streams.
The contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers, and we are seeking photographs that illustrate the positive aspects of the Bay and its rivers and streams. 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.
The cash awards include: First Prize: $500; Second Prize: $250; Third Prize: $150; and Viewers' Choice: $100.
In addition, the first-prize photograph will appear in CBF's 2018 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.
