Tennessee is teeming with stunning wildlife and habitats. We’re the most biologically diverse inland state in the U.S. and are fortunate to have mountains, marshes, and everything in between.

For its 5th annual photo contest, Tennessee Wildlife Federation is again calling for your photos of our wonderful wildlife. And for the first time, they’re also looking for your best shots of Tennessee’s breathtaking landscapes—from thrilling vistas to calming streams.

There are many ways to win prizes and have your work featured by Tennessee Wildlife Federation.

Judges will select the best of the best for our official 2020 calendar and to be highlighted on our digital platforms, which reach hundreds of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts like you. The People’s Choice winner will be selected through public voting that opens September 5.

So, check out past winners and enter your photos by August 31!
