Contest Rules

Birds of Europe - Photography OnlyWelcome to this contest sponsored by Wild Birds Of The World - A Nature Photography Group! You do not need to be a member of the group to enter, but our group rules will apply. We want to encourage you to check our group out to consider joining a great group of people and nature photographers! You will need to be a member and submit your entry to the group to receive the home page feature award in the event your image is among the top three.


1. The admin has the right and will remove all images that do not meet the theme or the rest of these rules.

2. This contest features photographs of wild birds seen on the European Continent and related islands (Greenland, Iceland, etc. NOTE: Russia will be included in the Asia contest next week) - they can be residents or migratory birds visiting those areas. Please include the country or region where the bird was photographed in the title or description.

3. The image must be a nature photograph of wild birds. They are not zoo birds, or kept birds or nursery birds. They are not domesticated.

4. Nature images are natural. They do not have false backgrounds, fancy effects, textures or painting added. The birds are clearly visible and not silhouettes. No bird feeders or other manmade objects (except scientific leg bands are OK). nor edits are allowed but the bird must be presented in a realistic and natural fashion.

5. You must use the full common name or scientific name the species of bird you present in the title or description. What kind of duck, warbler or gull is it? If you just call it a duck or a seagull, the entry will be deleted.

We look forward to your entries and wish you the best!
