What photo will you take tomorrow? Or what did you take last week? As CBF celebrates our 50th year, we want to see how you see the Bay and all its rivers and streams.

Our 2017 Photo Contest is now open to both amateur and professional photographers. Show us your vision of the Chesapeake watershed�from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Eastern Shore. All photos must include water from the Chesapeake Bay or a river or stream within the Bay watershed. 

Click here to submit your photo before the March 24 deadline and enter to win a prize!

A panel of CBF employees will judge entries on subject matter, composition, focus, lighting, uniqueness, and impact. The public will have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite photo in the Viewers' Choice Gallery. Winners receive cash prizes!

  • First Prize: $500
  • Second Prize: $250
  • Third Prize: $150
  • Viewers' Choice: $100

All winners will also receive a one-year CBF membership and will have their photos displayed in various CBF publications, such as our website, e-newsletters, and magazine. The first-prize photo will be featured in CBF's 2018 calendar. All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by May 31, 2017.

Click here to submit to the 2017 Save the Bay Photo Contest before the March 24 deadline!

So get outside and get inspired by the Chesapeake waters we all love. And don't forget those cameras or smartphones when you do! Hurry, the submission deadline is Friday, March 24, 2017, at 5 p.m. 

We look forward to seeing your pictures!
