WildBird Magazine Logo

For more than 20 years, WildBird has hosted a photography competition that continually draws incredible images of beautiful birds and provides an array of great prizes for the deserving photographers. The photo contest opens in February when subscribers receive WildBird’s March/April issue and see the current categories. 

With five categories and two entries allowed per category, photographers have 10 chances to win prizes. In total, WildBird’s photo contest awards 16 prizes: a grand prize plus a first-, second- and third-place prize for each category.

The photo contest’s rules, prizes and entry form appear in WildBird’s May/June issue, too, and the deadline for entries generally falls in mid-May. The rules and entry form do not appear online, only in the magazine.

When the judges look at each entry, they consider four primary factors, with the first — focus — being the foremost consideration. The bird’s bill and eyes have to appear in tack-sharp focus. Blurriness results in disqualification. The judges also look at action, composition and lighting, but focus remains the most challenging aspect for most participants.

WildBird thanks the generous sponsors who provided prizes for the 2006 photo contest.
