With its amazingly diverse wildlife community, sweeping landscapes, and abundant recreational opportunities, Outdoor Oklahoma is a photographer’s paradise! To better bring our state’s rich photo ops – and the photographers behind the shot – into focus, the Wildlife Department has created a Shutter Slam challenge.
To complete a slam, submit one photo in each of the selected slam’s categories. Then provide a brief statement for the selected slam’s Artist Focus.
ODWC Shutter Slam General Rules:
- Must submit original photos in a digital format.
- Amateur and professional work accepted.
- Photos do not have to be taken in the current ODWC Shutter Slam year and can come from the photographer’s lifetime portfolio.
- Photos do not have to be taken in Oklahoma, but must accurately represent Oklahoma’s native species and habitats.
All entrants will receive an all-weather sticker for the respective ODWC Shutter Slam. One submission from each of the slam categories will later be featured in the Wild Side, an e-newsletter for nature enthusiasts, and entries may also be used in “Outdoor Oklahoma,” the Wildlife Department’s bimonthly magazine and television show, at wildlifedpartment.com, and the Wildlife Department’s social media channels. Featured artists will be further interviewed to develop their Artist Focus for the story.
Check out the categories below. Submissions for 2022 will be accepted starting Aug 7, 2022.
