Bats are heroes. They work the night shift eating insects, pollinating flowers, and spreading seeds to help our environment. But bats are threatened by habitat loss, disease, and overharvesting for bush meat (at right, Rodrigues fruit bat).
Be a bat hero. Raise awareness and celebrate the role of bats in our backyards by sending us your best bat photos for Bat Week 2018 (October 24-31).
Our editorial team will choose the best submissions based on appeal, composition, originality, and technical quality. A group of chosen shots for this assignment will be posted on this page and one will be featured.
We can consider a maximum of four submissions per contributor.
NOTE: For this assignment, we’re offering an incentive. The author of the featured photo chosen by our editorial team will receive a Patagonia Refugio Pack, perfect for transporting your gear to the office, the crag, or the beach. See the official Contest Rules.
