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 eys of those who enjoy them.

And the Winners Are...

Congratulations to:

  • First Prize ($500): Alan Grubb "Alert Green Frog"

  • Third Prize ($150): Michelle Dandrea "Running the Fall"
  • Viewers' Choice ($100): Kathy Dennehey "Put It on My Bill"

The first-prize photograph will appear in CBF's 2021 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.
