Open to both amateur and professional photographers, CBF's annual Photo Contest highlights the beauty and character of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed's rivers and streams through the eyes of those who enjoy them.

And the Winners Are...

Congratulations to:

  • First Prize ($500): Edward Episcopo "Sunny Weather"
  • Second Prize ($250): Glenn Woodell "Fishing with Grandpa"
  • Third Prize ($150): Billy Garrett "Snow in the Marsh"
  • Viewers' Choice ($100): Dale Hall "Fishing Buddy"

See the winning photos on our Winners Gallery webpage or check the winners map below.

The first-prize photograph will appear in CBF's 2023 calendar. 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.

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.

Be sure to check back next spring for our 2023 photo contest!
