Here's your chance to have an image published in Ducks Unlimited magazine

Have you taken a great photo of a favorite hunting partner, your retriever in action, or waterfowl in their natural habitat? From November 1, 2022, to January 31, 2023, we will be accepting entries for the 2023 DU Magazine Photo Contest. As in past years, the DU magazine staff will judge entries in three categories: waterfowl, waterfowl hunting, and retrievers. The winner and runner-up in each category, as well as an overall winner and runner-up, will have their photos published in the May/June 2023 issue of Ducks Unlimited magazine.

This contest is open only to Ducks Unlimited members who are legal residents of the United States and at least 18 years old on the date of entry.
