2013 Photo Contest Voting Starts Today!

Brian Bovard, Communications Coordinator 

We received thousands of photos as part of our 4th annual photo contest, and now is your chance to help pick the winners! Vote for your favorite three photos at to decide which of our lucky and talented contestants gets to spend a week in Yellowstone with renowned wildlife photographer Jess Lee on one of his signature photo tours. 

We had some of the best photos I’ve seen yet this year, and it was a hard task to narrow it down just to 10, but we here at Defenders are very pleased with our finalists. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and one of our favorite jobs here each year is seeing the amazing way people have of looking at wildlife and wild lands and using those photos to tell their stories. Thanks to all of the contestants who entered this year, and we hope you enjoy the photos!!!

    I would vote on the 10 finalists in the photo contest, except the pictures on not appearing on the voting screen. I cannot vote based on those half inch samples you display. I need to see a bigger version of each picture to get a better view. So I will hold off voting until you can get the voting website corrected so that I can actually see what I am voting on. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

      Hi Natalie. If you click the smaller images you can see a fullscreen version of each photo. Hope this helps!

    Windows 8, IE 10, your thumbnails are not being displayed… except for the very first one.

      Hi Jim. We’re aware of the issue with IE 10 and looking into a solution. We apologize for the inconvenience. In the meantime, your best bet would be to try the page in a different browser, like Firefox or Chrome.
