Kansas Wildlife and Parks Magazine Hosts 10th Annual Photo Contest

Kansas Wildlife and Parks Magazine Hosts 10th Annual Photo Contest

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – For many readers of Kansas Wildlife and Parks Magazine – the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks’ flagship publication – the annual photo issue is a favorite. From star-studded scenes of a glittering Kansas night sky, to a foggy morning photo of anglers fishing the morning bite, the special photo issue showcases the epitome of what it means to live in and enjoy the state of Kansas. This is made possible, in part, because of the Wild About Kansas photo contest – an annual contest where amateur to professional photographers can compete to have a winning image (or two) published in the special issue.

Photographers who wish to participate can submit up to three photos total in any of the following categories:

  • Game Species (This category is primarily for game mammals, migratory birds, furbearers, etc.)
  • Non-game Species (This category is primarily for insects, reptiles, and amphibians, etc.)
  • Landscapes
  • Outdoor Recreation (Not hunting or fishing)
  • Hunting and Fishing

Submissions for the 2022 contest must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 2, 2022 to be considered.
