WildBird's photo contest!

For the 21st year, WildBird offers a photo contest with multiple categories and prizes. The entry form and new rules appear in the March/April and May/June issues. The postmark deadline for entries is May 15.

The entry form and rules will not appear online but only in the March/April and May/June issues. Among this year's changes:

* Only prints and digital files will be judged. Slides or transparencies are not eligible. The judges will not consider slides and transparencies.

* Winning images may be used, without compensation, in advertising and marketing of WildBird, including free promotional items such as a calendar.

* Participants can check a box to give permission for entries to be considered for Wandering Eye, the new gallery of readers' photos that appears in each issue.

Once again, we have the pleasure of offering a Canon digital SLR as the grand prize. This year's grand-prize photographer will receive an EOS 50D (above).

The five categories include amateur, sponsored by Kowa; backyard, sponsored by Droll Yankees; digiscoping, sponsored by Nikon; flight, sponsored by Minox; and water birds, sponsored by Leupold. Each category's sponsor offers prizes for first-, second- and third-place winners.

In total, WildBird's contest provides 16 prizes. You can see all of them on page 47 of the May/June issue. Check it out today!

Kevin, the rules and entry form for the annual contest always appear in the March/April and May/June issues. The winners always appear in the September/October issue. Good luck with the 2010 contest!

Will the images be accepted online this year? If not, any plans to do so in the future? Thanks!

Jan, the plan is for images to be accepted online next year, but I cannot guarantee that as it's not in my control. Like the announcement in the March/April and May/June issues says, we still accept prints and CDs.

Thanks for your interest!

Hi Jessica! Thanks for your interest in the contest.

The rules in the March/April and May/June issues say only images of native species photographed in the United States and Canada are eligible.
