Photographers in Maryland – both amateur and professional – now have the chance to submit their best photograph of the Chesapeake Bay in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s annual Save the Bay photo contest. 

The nonprofit is seeking photos that demonstrate the beauty of the Bay and the rivers and streams throughout its watershed. 

A panel of Chesapeake Bay Foundation employees will judge entries and the public will be able to vote for their favorite photo from April 11-22. 

Winners will receive a cash prize and a one-year membership to CBF. They will also have their photos on display in Save the Bay magazine and on the foundation’s website.

There will be four winners: first place for $500, second place for $250, third place for $150, and Viewers’ Choice for $100.

Submissions will be accepted online between March 7 and April 1.
