The Winning Photographs are Amazing

The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program invited amateur and professional photographers to submit their photos of birds of prey.  We asked and you answered, and what amazing photos you submitted.  The top 13 photographs have been chosen and will be included in the RMRP Annual 2018 Raptor Photo Calendar.  All photographs will include photo credits.
Winning photographers will receive a free copy of the calendar, and a discount on additional calendar purchases.  You may direct any questions to: Judy Scherpelz at 970-484-7756 or judy@rmrp.org.

Ethics of Raptor Photography

Photos can be of raptors found anywhere on the planet. Please note that all photos
submitted must demonstrate ethical behavior around wildlife, and any birds photographed,
must not have been harassed or intentionally flushed. We will not print any photo of a raptor that has been baited to come to a particular spot. Please refer to the American Birding
Associations Code of Ethics which can be found at this website: www.aba.org/about/ethics.html. If you have submitted a photo of a bird in or around a nest please submit detailed information about your distance from the nest and the type of lens used.
If the photo you submit has identifiable people in it, you must submit signed photo releases from
them, or their parent if they are minors.

Deadline for photo submission: July 1, 2017.
