Birdathon 2021 Photography Contest

Do you enjoy birding through a camera lens as much as through binoculars? Show off your birding finesse AND your photography skills while supporting Travis Audubon!

Travis Audubon’s Birdathon will include a photography contest.
There are some guidelines for the photos that can be submitted.
Photos should:
– contain birds (and no people!)
– be taken between April 1 and May 10, 2021 (you know, Birdathon dates!)
– be taken in Texas
– be submitted by the photographer (or guardian if the photographer is a minor)

Since this is a fundraiser, entry into the contest is $5 per photo.

Photos do not need to be taken during an official Birdathon excursion. If you have a great photo op while drinking coffee on your back porch, then that’s great!

What’s in it for the winners? The top five photos will be featured on Travis Audubon’s social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) with photographer recognition. The first place photo winner will be featured in our Signal Smoke blog and will have their photo included in our Annual Report.
Note: This year, photographers can only place once. So, the top five photos will be from five different photographers.

Who is judging the photos? We are in the process of securing judges. We will let you know as soon as we know!

Submit your photos by sending them to You will receive a reply that asks you a few easy questions and provides a link to pay the entry fee. The deadline to submit is Tuesday, May 11, 11:59 PM CT.
