It’s time to showcase the natural beauty of Whidbey and Camano islands with your best outdoor photographs.

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust’s annual photo contest is underway and photo submissions are being accepted.

Everyone is invited to participate in the contest, which is now in its sixth year. The contest opened February 1 and the final day to submit photos is Sunday, July 7, 2019. Each participant may submit up to five photos.

All photos must be taken outdoors on Whidbey or Camano islands. Images that showcase island landscapes, wildlife or people out in nature are most desired. We encourage photos taken on properties that are protected by the Land Trust and allow public access.

Winning photos will be featured in the 2020 Whidbey Camano Land Trust Calendar. At least 12 feature photos will be selected, one for each month. Twelve smaller photos also will appear in the calendar.

Photographers whose images are selected will receive special recognition and complimentary calendars.

Last year, 900 calendars were printed, distributed and sold at locations throughout Island County. The 2019 calendar cover photo isĀ a landscape of Sunlight Beach on South Whidbey taken by Julie Boyd. More than 300 photos were entered in the contest last year.

Learn more about how the contest works and to view photo requirements. Encourage others to participate by sharing our photo contest poster.
