Chesapeake Bay Foundation's 2017 Save the Bay Photo Contest

Chesapeake Bay Foundation's 2017 Save the Bay Photo Contest is Open

As CBF celebrates our 50th year, we want to see how you see the Bay and all its rivers and streams.

CBF's photo contest is open to both amateur and professional photographers, and we are seeking photographs that illustrate the positive aspects of the Bay and its rivers and streams. We want to see your vision of the Bay region—from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from the Shenandoah Mountains to the Eastern Shore. Images depicting people, wildlife, recreation, and farms within the watershed will all be considered. All photos must include water from the Chesapeake Bay or a river, stream, creek, or other body of water inside the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Official judging will be conducted by a panel of CBF employees who will judge entries on subject matter, composition, focus, lighting, uniqueness, and impact. The public will also be able to vote online for their favorite photo in the Viewers' Choice Gallery. The awards are as follows:

First Prize: $500
Second Prize: $250
Third Prize: $150
Viewers' Choice: $100

Submissions will be accepted online at between February 21, 2017 and March 24, 2017 at 5:00 pm. All winners will be notified of the outcome, and their images will be posted on the CBF website by May 31, 2017.
