(September 16,2013: Please note I am no longer accepting photos – thanks for all your great submissions!)
The original post:
Please share your wonderful urban wildlife photos!
Beginning in mid-September, I’ll be speaking at various venues about my new book, The Urban Bestiary, and I’m developing a slideshow of urban wildlife images that will play as folks in the audience find their seats.
I’ll also be using urban wildlife photos in some short videos I am producing for the book, and other social media venues.
So I’m inviting you to submit your best urban wildlife photos! The Urban Bestiary is about the community of beings, so I’m happy to have a way for others in the community to join in and play a part.
With Tom’s help, I have set up a submission site here. I’m looking for images of North American wildlife, especially in urban contexts (coyotes on sidewalks, raccoons on porches, squirrels on bird feeders, bears raiding garbage cans, hawks on the fencepost, chickadees in the garden…). Fancy lenses not required–some of the best urban-wild moments are captured on iPhones!
I’ll be posting my favorite images to an album on my Facebook page, I’ll put a few here on the blog, and I’ll use them at speaking engagements. Of course I’ll credit all photographers.
In addition, I’ll draw from the submissions and send one photographer a personalized, signed copy of The Urban Bestiary the week it comes out (September 17).
Please read the terms on the submission form. By participating, you are granting me the right to use the images you submit as part of promotion for The Urban Bestiary, and certifying that you own the rights to the images you submit.
Thank you so much! I’m looking forward to seeing your photos and reading your captions!
