2019 Audubon Photography Awards Marks 10th Year of Exquisite Bird Photography


Birds make fascinating subjects, as the winners and honorable mentions of this year’s contest, our 10th, make clear. They’re at once beautiful and resilient, complex and comical. Thank you to the 2,253 entrants from all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and 10 Canadian provinces and territories for your dedication to appreciating, celebrating, and sharing the wonder of birds and the landscapes they inhabit.

Presented in association with Nature’s Best Photography, winning photos and honorable mentions will be featured at the biennial Audubon Convention in July 2019, in future issues of Audubon magazine and Nature’s Best Photography magazine, and in a special traveling Audubon Photography Awards exhibit hosted by Audubon chapters and centers across the country.
