The ABQ BioPark invites you to enter our second annual online photo contest now through November 3. Submit your best images of the Zoo, Aquarium, Botanic Garden and Tingley Beach for a chance to win behind-the-scenes tours, annual passes and more. Photographers of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate.
Contestants may submit BioPark images taken between August 1, 2012 and November 3, 2013 by posting them to our 2013 Online Photo Contest group on Flickr. Photos may be entered into one of six contest categories: BioPark Babies, Birds of a Feather, Bug Out, Colorful Close-Ups, Landscapes and Under the Sea.
“Visitors are always taking great photos at the BioPark, and we think this is a fun way to let people share them,” said Rick Janser, ABQ BioPark Director. “We want to inspire more people to use their cameras to tell stories of nature and conservation.”
When all submissions are in on November 3, a judging panel will pick the top ten photos from each category. Fans will be able to vote for their favorite photos on Facebook. Winners will be announced on November 18. For details and official contest rules, please visit http://bit.ly/ABPPhotoContest2013.
When the BioPark held its first online photo contest to celebrate the Zoo’s 85th Birthday in 2012, hundreds of photos were submitted.
