Founded in 1923, New Mexico Magazine reigns as the longest-tenured state magazine in the United States. Our photography contests are legendary: challenging amateur photographers to capture some of the most stunning scenery, interesting people, and extraordinary events in the world. And every year, we are amazed by the quality and breadth of your submissions. It's time to do it again!

Welcome to the 17th Annual New Mexico Magazine Photography Contest

 

ENTRY INFORMATION

This year’s contest will open for entries on July 15. Deadline is 5PM Mountain Time on November 6.

A Grand Prize of a gift certificate for the famed Santa Fe Photographic Workshops will be awarded to the single image that gains the most votes.

First, second, and third prizes (winners receive subscriptions, calendars, publication in the magazine, and an invitation to participate in an gallery exhibition), as well as an honorable mention, may be awarded in each of the following categories (depending on number and quality of submissions):

Seasons: From beautiful snowfalls to stormy summer skies, from the first peek of flowers through the snow to aspens ablaze.

Landscapes: Our epic land and sky, framed beautifully.

Sense of Place: From ghost towns to fiestas, from lowrider cruises to chile harvests, those images that can only be from here.

Plants & Animals: If it grows, roams, or flies anywhere in New Mexico.

New Mexico Details: A closer focus on New Mexico life, our people, our professions, our places, and things.

Special Category: State Parks: From Navajo Lake to Bluewater Lake, from Oasis to Pancho Villa, New Mexico State Parks offer a unique experience and stunning opportunities for intrepid photographers to capture people playing, birds flying, water rushing, winds blowing, and everything in-between.

 

NOTE: Digital photography has changed the way in which images can be made. With that in mind, we’re okay with darkening, lightening, or adjusting color in photographs in all categories. You can change contrast, burn and dodge your images, and convert them to black and white. But really, we believe that this is a beautiful state and like it the way it is. Please don’t overdo it in processing your photos, and as always, our judges will show a preference for a good eye over the willy-nilly use of the saturation slider. Also, if you’re shooting with your phone or other mobile device, your photos will be much easier to choose (and work with) if you’re shooting at your highest resolution.

Winning photographs will be published in the February 2018 issue of New Mexico Magazine (available on newsstands in mid-January), and may be featured in the 2018 New Mexico Magazine Calendar.

And finally, New Mexico Magazine will once again partner with the Tularosa Basin Gallery of Photography in Carrizozo to present a show featuring contest winners. (Participation in the exhibition is strictly voluntary, with all details, including the pricing and proceeds from sales, to be arranged between the photographer and the gallery. The magazine does not share in the proceeds.)

The entry fee is $25 and includes the submission of five images. Each additional image is $5. Photographs must be in digital format, and without watermark. Only online entries will be eligible. No print or film submissions will be accepted.

Please note: If you choose to include people in your submission, you are responsible for obtaining the necessary releases from the individuals depicted. Likewise, if your images include private property (and this includes dogs, cats, mountains, and sculptures, among other subjects), you are responsible for obtaining the necessary release from the property owner. You must be able to provide copies of these releases to New Mexico Magazine upon request. Examples and templates for such a release can be found at https://www.asmp.org/property-model-releases/.
