Enter the BirdSpotter Photo Contest!

November 14, 2012

As we start our 26th season of FeederWatch, we’re celebrating with a new photo contest sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods. The contest features weekly prizes for the photo that receives the most votes on the contest page in Facebook. At the end of FeederWatch season, we’ll hold a vote to determine the grand prize winner, who will win a trip for two to Oregon to go birding with Bob and tour the Red Mill, among other great prizes.

Each week’s contest features a theme for the photos. We’ll post the theme each Wednesday and you can begin uploading photos and/or voting for them immediately. Voting lasts until Sunday night, and we’ll announce the winner on Monday morning and contact them to send a prize package of tasty Bob’s Red Mill products and a few souvenirs from the Cornell Lab.

A few other notes on how the system works:

  • Be sure to enter your photo on the contest tab. Photos uploaded to our main Facebook page or emailed to FeederWatch won’t be entered.
  • The contest only allows one entry per person per week. Choose wisely!
  • Photos don’t have to be taken the week of the contest, so you can look through your archives.
  • Even if you don’t enter the contest, you can help choose the winner. You may vote for as many photos as you like, although you may only vote for each photo once.
  • When you enter a photo, you grant us permission to use it in the future (as with other Project FeederWatch photo submissions). Please be sure to upload only photos that are yours. Full contest rules are posted here.
  • You don’t have to be a Project FeederWatch participant to enter—but we hope you’ll join the project anyway!
