Photo Contest

Each year, we asked Puget Sound area photographers to give us their best shot of birds typically found in our region, then invite the public to cast their votes online in both adult (18+) and youth categories. Votes come in from all around the world, and first place winners receive a prize. 

The contest rules and timeline are announced in late spring, when you can fined details on our homepage. 

Entries are now being accepted for the 2022 Bird Fest Photo Contest.
