We Want YOUR Photos!

It's that time of year again: Our annual Save the Bay Photo Contest! From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Eastern Shore, what's your vision of the Chesapeake Bay watershed?

Our annual photo contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers who illustrate the positive aspects of the Bay and its rivers and streams through their photos. Images depicting people, wildlife, recreation, and farms within the watershed will all be considered. All photos must include water from the Chesapeake Bay or a river, stream, creek, or other body of water inside the Bay watershed. Submissions must be mailed to CBF and postmarked between March 12, 2012, and April 13, 2012.

Check out our top three winners from last year below!
