Photo contest is for the birds

Add caption
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is now accepting entries for its “Birds of South Florida” Photo Contest as part of the Bird Festival presented by Fairchild and the Tropical Audubon Society. Entering the contest is free and open to all amateur photographers. 

Photo submissions must be sent with the Registration Form filled out and attached via email to Vanessa Cook at vcook@fairchildgarden.org by Friday, September 19. The top 20 photos will be digitally displayed throughout the garden and on our Facebook page during the Bird Festival, held at Fairchild from October 4-5.

Expert judges will review each submission and select the top 20 photos. The judging panel will then choose the first, second, and third place winners, which they will announce right before the Keynote Lecture at the Bird Festival on Saturday, October 4. The top three entries will receive a special prize.

The Bird Festival spans from October 2-5 beginning with two days of off-site field trips and continuing with on-site activities. The event features bird walks, a photo contest, plant sales, and lectures by Dr. James A. Kushlan Keynote Speakers James Currie and Dr. Cagan Sekercioglu. “Birds of Fairchild,” a new book written by Dr. Kushlan with photography by Kirsten Hines that highlights the many diverse birds found in the garden, will be available for purchase at the festival.

To submit a photo, please visit fairchildgarden.org/BirdFestival to fill out and email the Photo Contest Registration Form.
