The winning entries were selected from more than 6,000 entries from all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and seven Canadian provinces and territories. The eleventh year of the competition awarded images in four divisions: Professional, Amateur, Youth and Bird Plants.
The Plants for Birds Award highlights the essential role of native plants and the natural habitat and food sources they provide for birds. One of the photos also received Audubon’s Fisher Award, named after former Audubon creative director Kevin Fisher.
