The 2021 Outdoor Alabama Photo Contest plans to accept photo entries starting August 3, 2020.  The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Alabama Tourism Department have partnered up to make this project possible.  Participants will have until October 31 to enter.

This year’s contest will focus largely on traditional photography techniques and handheld cameras.  Only handheld camera photos will be qualified for nine of the contest’s 10 categories.  The Young Photographers category will allow the submission of smartphone and tablet photos.

Both Alabama residents and visitors are allowed to enter the contest.  However, they can only submit up to eight photos, and they all need to have been taken in Alabama within the past two years.

The contest will award the first, second, and third place winners along with one honorable mention in each category.  Winning photos will be posted in a traveling exhibit and online next year.

The complete contest rule list can be found at www.outdooralabama.com/outdoor-alabama-photo-contest.
