Photo Contest

Results from the 2020 Annual Photo Contest

Although Festival of the Cranes had to be cancelled last year, 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!

Please see the winning photographs from our 2020 Photo Contest listed below. We restructured the categories to the following:

1) Sandhill cranes

2) People

3) Wildlife

4) Landscapes
