CHEYENNE, Wyo.— The Wyoming Game and Fish Department on Monday reminded photographers that a deadline is approaching to enter Wyoming Wildlife magazine’s 2021 photo contest.

“Photographers can enter their best shots by midnight November 15,” Game and Fish said. “Winning entries and honorable mentions will be published in the February 2022 photo issue of Wyoming Wildlife.”

People can enter up to 10 photographs with a maximum digital size of nine megabytes. Photos must fall into one of the following categories:

  • Wildlife — Wild mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects
  • Scenic — Landmarks, scenery or inanimate objects are prominent
  • Recreation — People enjoying the outdoors through hunting, fishing, hiking, backpacking, skiing or other outdoor activities
  • Flora — Wildflowers, foliage, fruiting bodies or other parts of plants

Submissions are accepted online only,” Game and Fish said. “Photos must have been taken in Wyoming and cannot have been previously submitted to or taken on assignment for Wyoming Wildlife. Employees of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Wyoming Game and Fish Commissioners and their immediate families are ineligible. Photographers are encouraged to practice ethical photography, keeping an appropriate distance and respecting animals and their habitats.”

“In addition to being published in the magazine, the grand-prize winner for the best overall photo will receive $600 and a $350 voucher for a print of their shot on metal, gallery mount or other canvas at Artizen Photo Printing in Cheyenne. Prizes are also offered for first, second and third places in each of the four photo categories. Honorable mentions will also be recognized.
