The contest is open to photographers of all ages. Prizes will be awarded in three categories (birds, nature, and people enjoying nature) and in three age groups (children, teens and adults). All photos must be taken in the Woodland Beach Wildlife Area between Jan. 1 and Aug. 16, 2021.

As a starting point, and hopefully an inspiration for photographers considering submitting their work, we offer a selection of photos captured by DNREC staff (who are not eligible for the contest).
