Submissions open for 5th Annual Wildlife and Landscape photo contest


Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to conserving the state’s wildlife and natural resources, is now accepting photo submissions for its 5th annual Tennessee wildlife and landscape photo contest.

Photographers — from amateurs to professionals — are encouraged to submit up to 20 of their best images of Tennessee’s wildlife and, for the first time, landscapes. Submissions can be made from Aug. 1st through Aug. 31st at

A panel of judges will select the best photos to be featured in the Federation’s 2020 calendar and across the Federation’s digital platforms. Winners will also receive a variety of prizes including gift cards, Federation apparel, a YETI cooler and Patagonia duffel bag.

“Tennessee has so much to offer it’s impossible for one person to see and capture it all,” said Kendall McCarter, chief development officer for Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “That’s why getting to share our diverse wildlife and habitats through the photography of those who love it most is one of the highlights of the year.”

The deadline to submit photos is 11:59 p.m. CT Aug. 31. Voting for the People’s Choice winner will be open for the public on Sept. 5.
