Contest Rules:

  • Entry Deadline: All entries must be submitted by January 31, 2018. Entries are pre-judged before the conference and presented in a slide show at the banquet. The entry deadline is not flexible, so please plan ahead.
  • You do not need to be present at the conference to win.
  • Contest open to IAATE member photographers only! You must take your own photos to enter. No 2nd party non-member photos please.
  • AMATEUR photographers only (a professional photographer is defined as making 40% or more of their annual salary from selling photos).

Please submit photos 300dpi at size to be printed (approximate sizes used: cover 8"x10," inside at least 3"x5"). Send entries by email only if they are full-size images. We really want these photos to look good in print, so the higher quality is important. Sending photos individually is fine. A return email will be sent to confirm receipt of the photos sent via email. If you do not receive a confirmation email, I did not receive the photos.
  • No more than 10 entries per individual.
  • Photographer grants IAATE permission to use the photos in any IAATE publication, including the IAATE web site. All other rights retained by Photographer.

  • Please save your photo file with the entry number and species name - example turkey.vulture.1.jpg, Redtailed.hawk.2.jpg, etc. This will assist us with filing photos and identifying species for future use in our publications.
