Annual Photo Contest

Although Festival of the Cranes had move to a virtual platform and become our second annual Crane Fiesta, we still held our annual Photo Contest and were overwhelmed by the dozens of stunning photos that were entered! We’d like to thank everyone who submitted their amazing photos, which so perfectly capture the magic of Bosque del Apache!  We’d also like to thank our judges, who had the nearly impossible task of choosing this year’s winners from the pool of very impressive entries!

We restructured the categories to the following:

1) Sandhill cranes

2) Wildlife

3) People

4) Landscapes
