Oh, Snap! Take a Peek at NCWF’s 2021 Wildlife Photo Contest Winners
2021 Wildlife Photo Contest Winners
North Carolina’s amateur shutterbugs did a whole lot of snapping for North Carolina Wildlife Federation’s 3rd annual Wildlife Photography Contest held May through July. We received an astounding 600 submissions highlighting the beauty and diversity of North Carolina’s nature, wildlife and recreational opportunities – from the coast to the mountains. Categories included Carolina Critters, People in Nature, Scenes of North Carolina, Trail Camera Captures and Youth.
“Picking a single standout photo from each of the five categories was no easy task for our panel of judges,” said Tara Moore, director of conservation partnerships. “Thank you so much to the photographers across the state who beautifully captured and documented North Carolina’s bountiful natural resources and helped raise more than $2,100 to support wildlife habitat conservation and restoration in our state.
Winning contest photos will be featured on NCWF’s website and social media accounts and in our monthly Wildlife Wire newsletter and Wild Lives Wild Places Journal.
