Save the Bay Photo Contest

Photo Contest 2019 695x352

We're looking for your best photos of the Bay, its rivers, and streams


CBF's annual photo contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers. Share your experience of the Bay and your local waterways.

And the Winners Are...

Congratulations to:

  • First Prize ($500): Alan Wilder "Watch Your Back"
  • Second Prize ($250): Kevin Moore "Reflections of Autumn"
  • Third Prize ($150): Jimmy Rhode "Curious Beaver"
  • Viewers' Choice ($100): James Mertz "Starry Sunset"

See the winning photos here.

The first-prize photograph will appear in CBF's 2020 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 2020 photo contest!
