Seasonal Photo Contests

Carolyn Miles

FOAR hosts seasonal photo contests to help show off the wildlife and landscapes found at the refuge. Check out the contest rules for the latest contest and enter for your chance to win prizes! 

Spring is almost here so take pictures at the refuge between March 8, 2020 and May 30, 2020 and submit your best photos to the Friends of Anahuac Refuge 2020 Spring Photo Contest. A “Photo of the Week” will be chosen each week, and that image will be featured here and on FOAR's Facebook page. Weekly winners will be awarded a $20.00 Gift Certificate to the Refuge Nature Stores. At the conclusion of the contest, the best three images will be chosen from the 12 “Photo of the Week” winners. From those, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for the contest will be chosen. The photos may be of wildlife, plants, macro, landscape or any activity on the refuge. Each person can submit up to 3 images per week during the contest and win up to 2 of the 12 weekly contests.
1st Place - a pair of Vortex Diamondback 10x50 Binoculars (Approx. $200.00 value)
2nd Place - a pair of Vortex Diamondback 10x42 Binoculars (Approx. $160.00 value)
