Backyard Wildlife Contest: Deadline 30 June 2010

Tamron USA Inc., Commack, N.Y., announced the second in its series of four photo contests for 2010: Backyard Wildlife. This contest asks entrants to submit photographic portraits of their local wildlife, whether found in their own backyard, local parks, or other urban and rural neighborhood areas. The contest is looking for local wildlife indigenous to the photographer’s hometown; so photos from zoos, aquariums, and the like will not be considered.

The contest runs from April 1 to June 30. The Grand Prize Winner will receive his or her choice of 1 of 4 Tamron lenses. Users of any camera equipment may enter the Tamron photo contest.
The Backyard Wildlife photo contest entries will be evaluated and selected by a guest judge, Jackie Bailey Labovitz, a former art curator and current photographer from the Washington, D.C., area, whose recent mission is to help preserve and celebrate local wildlife through photography.

In addition to receiving the Tamron lens of choice, the winner’s picture will be showcased on the Tamron website. The winner and 20 photographers whose images are selected by the judge as Favorites will have their names and winning images published on the website and on the Tamron page on Facebook.

To enter, email low-res images to Tamron. The subject line must read “Backyard Wildlife Photo Contest.” The winner and finalists will be contacted for high-res images. Complete rules and an entry form can be found online.
