Contest seeks wildlife photos

Tennessee Wildlife Federation is calling for photos of the state’s stunning wildlife and habitats. The most breathtaking shots will be featured in the 2018 calendar and win prizes. Photo submissions are open now but will close August 31, 2017.

This year, the federation is celebrating the public lands in Tennessee that conserve some of the most important natural places and wildlife. Though not a requirement, contest judges will be on the lookout for photos taken on public lands—from state parks to wildlife management areas to national forests. A panel will select the best of the best for the official 2018 Tennessee Wildlife Federation calendar, which goes to thousands of outdoor enthusiasts. Also returning this year is the People’s Choice photo that will be selected through an online vote.

There are prizes for photographers whose work is featured:

Everyone with a photo in the calendar will receive a copy to display proudly.
The 12 month photos and the cover photo earn the photographer Tennessee Wildlife Federation apparel.
The cover image photographer will receive a $200 gift card.
And the People’s Choice photographer will receive a $100 gift card.
