OFFICIAL RULES

When I think of autumn I think of mammals. I think of bears in hyperphagia. I think of elk in rut. I think of pronghorn migrations. I think of coyotes and wolves and foxes beginning to grow into their luxurious winter coats. The seasons are changing, days are getting shorter, temperatures are beginning to dip, snow is beginning to fly in the high country. This is a time of transition and of preparation. Winter is coming. And this fact has every mammal in the northern hemisphere reacting accordingly.

Thus, this next photography contest is going to be all about the mammals.

These photographs do not need to be from autumn or fall (yes there actually is a difference). They just have to be your very best mammal photographs.

And this time, there will be not one but two winners of the contest, beginner and advanced. You will have to decide which category you belong in.

Here are the rules:

  • You must be a subscriber to the Journal of Wildlife Photography to enter. Learn more
  • To post your entry in the official Facebook group, use the hashtag #Beginner or #Advanced to distinguish which category your image is being submitted to. If you don’t have Facebook, you can submit your entry via email to contest@journalofwildlifephotography.com. You MUST include Advanced or Beginner in the subject line.
    • You are a beginner if you are still learning the technical/settings side of photography i.e. f-stop, ISO, exposure, etc.
    • You are advanced if you have a handle on the technical/settings part and are now focusing on light and composition.
  • NOTE: I realize there may be some ambiguity in the above, so please do your best to submit your entry to the proper category. I reserve the right to bump photos up to the advanced category.
  • All entries must contain the animal’s common name, Latin name, and a unique fact about the species. Yes, you have to do a little digging. This is the Journal of Wildlife Photography, after all, so step up.
  • Contestants are limited to submitting 5 photographs – they do not have to be submitted at the same time
  • Photographs must be of WILD animals. No domesticated species and no game farms.

The winners of both the Beginner and Advanced categories will receive a $1,500 gift card to B&H Photo! 

Both winner’s photo’s will also be featured on the cover of an upcoming issue of the Journal of Wildlife Photography.

The Journal of Wildlife Photography is the Premier Wildlife Publication For ANY Level!

The Journal of Wildlife Photography is the only publication on earth that braids together ecology and biology with workshop level photographic education.​

Learning to become a wildlife photographer is time-consuming. It can take years to learn the ropes and hone your skills. Different animals require different tactics. The editing process is wholly different from other genera of photography. And most photographers progress at a glacial pace, inch by inch, for this reason.
The Journal of Wildlife Photography changes that by bringing you workshop level education from working professional wildlife photographers. Using real-world examples and giving you access to countless years of collective experience, the Journal will make you a better photographer. Guaranteed.
