Watchable wildlife photo contest changes

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department's Watchable Wildlife Photo Contest is getting a facelift.

The department will no longer produce a Watchable Wildlife promotional poster, but instead feature more participant photographs in North Dakota OUTDOORS.

The contest has categories for nongame and game species, as well as plants/insects. An overall winning photograph will be chosen, with the number of place winners in each category determined by the number of qualified entries.

Contest entries are limited to 5x7-inch or larger color prints, or digital files submitted on disk or via e-mail. Contestants are limited to no more than five entries. Photos must have been taken in North Dakota. Submission deadline is Sept. 30.

By submitting an entry, photographers grant permission to the Game and Fish Department to publish winning photographs in North Dakota OUTDOORS magazine, and as part of the magazine on the department's Web site,
