2021 Audubon Photography Awards Now Accepting Submissions

The 2021 Audubon Photography Awards are officially open for submissions! And this year we’re excited to announce two new prizes: a Video Prize and Female Bird Prize. Like in years past, winning photos will be published in future issues of Audubon magazine, our Youth winner will be awarded a special trip to take their bird photography to the next level, and our Grand Prize winner will take home a cash prize of $5,000!

After a year that tested our resolve in ways we never could have imagined, many found respite and inspiration in birds and nature. We look forward to seeing the beauty and talent displayed in the photos submitted and can’t wait to share the winners with you later this year. 

Read on for detailed contest rules, more about our exciting new prizes, and tips on how to capture that perfect shot.
