The 3rd annual Garden for WildlifeTM Photo Contest is closed. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's contest.

Be part of our visual community that recognizes the impact of gardening for wildlife. We are rewarding the photographs that best illustrate the faces of Garden for Wildlife through striking color images showing the impact of habitat gardens, on wildlife and people –in urban, suburban and rural settings on land, in the air and in the water. 

Every person who enters not only honors their own work, but also helps support the conservation mission of the National Wildlife Federation, which is dedicated to saving wildlife species and their habitats. Photographers retain rights to their work. Those who chose to donate some of their images share joint ownership with NWF, and further help us advance our conservation mission.
