The winning entries for the 2019-20 Tennessee Wildlife magazine photo contest have been selected by staff members of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. The selections will appear in the annual calendar issue of the magazine, which will be available in July.
The staff selected photographs from hundreds of submissions and had the challenge to narrow the entries to 13 photos that will appear in the calendar issue.
The 2019-20 calendar will begin with the month of August and continues through the following July. Other entries will be kept on file and could have the opportunity to appear in future agency publications and on the agency’s website.
The photographers with the selected entries are Jimmy Baker (Normandy), John Bell (Martin), Donna Bourdon (Ooltewah), Sharon Cardin (Nashville), Jeffery Cashdollar (Goodlettsville), Jennifer Jenson (Bowling Green, Ky.), Larry Patterson (Hendersonville), Rick Small (Rock Hill, S.C.), Brian Shults (Alcoa), and Mary Glynn Williamson (Nashville).
The staff of Tennessee Wildlife congratulates the winners and reminds photographers that if your photo was not chosen, next year’s entry could be a winner. Rules and deadlines for the 2020-21 Tennessee Wildlife photo contest will appear in future issues of the magazine and also in the fall on the TWRA website. Photographers will again be invited to submit their best photos on fishing and wildlife species native to the Volunteer State, and fishing and hunting scenes in Tennessee.
