Water Birds

In association with Photocrowd

Open Judging Results

Water birds are ones that live mostly on or around water, whether that be in freshwater or marine environments, and the term covers many amazing species with fascinating adaptations. In the spirit of inclusivity we are including birds like ospreys and sea eagles that are mainly land-based, but live off fish and hunt over water. All manner of bird behaviours, and styles of photography are welcome.

This Premium Contest is worth 3x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
