Meet the 2021 Judges
Your work will be evaluated by an expert panel of bird photographers, videographers and experts.
You’re wild about birds and your camera. Now combine your passions by entering the 2021 Audubon Photography Awards, featuring two new categories this year: a video category and a female bird category. You could win a cash prize or, if you’re our Youth winner, a special trip that will help you become an even better birder or bird photographer. Winning photos will be published in future issues of Audubon magazine.
