Save the Bay Photo Contest

Chesapeake Bay Foundation's 2017 Save the Bay Photo Contest

Spring 2017

Thank you to everyone who submitted photographs illustrating their vision of the Bay region—from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from the Shenandoah Mountains to the Eastern Shore.

Still to come...Contest and Viewers' Choice winners will be announced May 31, 2017.

CBF's annual photo contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers. Each year we seek your vision of the Bay region.

Official judging for the top three winning entries will be conducted by a panel of CBF employees who will judge entries on subject matter, composition, focus, lighting, uniqueness, and impact. The awards are as follows:

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

In addition, the first-prize photograph will appear in CBF's 2018 calendar. And that's not all:  All winners will also receive a one-year membership to CBF and will have their photos displayed on CBF's website, in a CBF e-newsletter, and in CBF's Save the Bay magazine.

All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by May 31, 2017.
