  • Photo entry must be taken by you.
  • Entrants can submit up to 3 photos during the contest time frame. (Professional photographers are asked not to enter, to give others a chance. But if you wish to have your photos showcased with a watermark on the site, please contact us here. )

Your name and email are very important, (if we do not have your email then we will not know how to notify you if you win!), location of photo (City, State/Province, Country), type of bird, what the bird is eating, circumstance and any other information a contestant might wish to include.
  • You must give permission for your photo to be used on the site in perpetuity to enter the contest. Your name can be watermarked on it, if you wish.
  • After the contest closing date, voting will be opened to everyone who wishes to cast a vote between April 8th to April 14th. The ten photos with the most votes will be passed on to the judges.
  • Judges will be emailed the link where they can view the top ten photos to make their choice on April 16th. Judges are asked to have their decisions returned by April 21st.
