National Wildlife Photo Contest

The 2018 National Wildlife Photo Contest is now closed.

The National Wildlife® Photo Contest, which began more than four decades ago, celebrates the power of photography to advance conservation and connect both photographers and viewers with wildlife and the outdoors. The most compelling nature images can help protect wildlife in profound ways.

Each and every person who enters photographs in National Wildlife's photo contest not only honors their own work, but also helps support the conservation mission of the National Wildlife Federation, which is dedicated to saving wildlife species and their habitats. A selection of the winning photographs and honorable mentions will be published in the December-January 2019 issue of National Wildlife magazine. All winning images and honorable mentions will be published on the National Wildlife Federation’s website. 

You can further support this mission by becoming a member of the National Wildlife Federation, which entitles you to receive National Wildlife magazine as a benefit of membership. For more information on how to join and get the magazine, click here.
