Enjoy the spectacular award-winning photos selected from more than 5,500 entries. The winning photos were originally published in the Summer 2017 issue of Audubon Magazine and show birdlife at its most vivid, vulnerable, formidable, and elegant. Photographers from 49 states and eight Canadian provinces submitted images in three categories: professional, amateur, and youth. A panel of five judges had the daunting task of shifting through the stunning images and grading them based on technical quality, originality, and artistic merit.
Meet 2017 award-winning photographer Heather Roskelley and 2016 Grand Prize winner Bonnie Block at the First Friday Art Walk Reception on Friday, April 6 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
