Audubon Photography Awards 2024 opens with magnificent photos of birds in their surroundings
Audubon Photography Awards 2024 is now ready for your photos. You have until February 28 to submit your photos, and this year’s contest brings some novelties. There’s a new prize involving birds in their surroundings. So, we bring you some wonderful photos for inspiration.
“The contest’s new Birds in Landscapes Prize aims to highlight how birds connect with their broader surroundings,” the propositions read. “Birds do not need to be close up for the photograph to be successful. The setting can be wild, urban, or suburban, and the relationship can be symbiotic or can reflect a specific challenge birds face.”
Other prizes include the Grand Prize, Professional Prize, Amateur Prize, Youth Prize, Plants for Birds Prize, Fisher Prize, Female Bird Prize, and Video Prize. Winning the Grand Prize brings you USD 5,000, and each category carries a monetary prize, among other things.
The contest is open from January 10, 2024, until February 28, 2024, at noon ET. Winners and honorable mentions will be featured in the Summer 2024 issue of Audubon magazine. Select photos and videos will also be featured in digital galleries promoted on Audubon’s website and social channels throughout the year.
Additional details and rules
The contest is open to all legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada (excluding Quebec). You need to be 13 years of age or older as of the date of the submission.
