Bird Watcher's Digest (BWD) magazine has been publishing beautiful bird photography for nearly 30 years. Of course in 1978, when we started publishing, we only published black-and-white images. Thankfully all that has now changed! We use images to augment our magazine's content, so we often look for non-traditional shots of birds, including images capturing unusual behavior or settings. For our species profiles of birds we look for more traditional images: sharp, well-composed portraits of wild birds in their natural habitat.

We encourage bird photographers to behave ethically both in the field and at the light table. We rarely publish images of captive or restrained birds, or images that have been digitally or physically manipulated to create a stunning, but unreal, final product.

We appreciate the hard work and love that bird photographers put into their craft. And we realize that bird and nature photography is a highly competitive field. Therefore we strive to treat the photographers with whom we do business with respect.

Submitting Your Images to Us

If this is your first submission to BWD, please understand that more is not necessarily better. We suggest an initial submission of 20 or fewer images so that we can judge the quality of your work. If our reviewers feel that you work warrants inclusion on our photo want list (see BWD Photo Want List below), we will notify you of this and will add your name at the next want list update. Unfortunately we are not able to add every submitting photographer to our want list.

Images for specific features will be requested via our want list, which is e-mailed to select photographers. Ongoing image needs include remarkable portrait images of birds, bird watchers using binoculars or scopes, groups of birders, and birds at feeders, nest boxes, and birdbaths. We are less likely to use images of the oft-photographed species such as great blue heron, Canada goose, common duck species at a park pond, pelicans or egrets at fishing piers, etc. We do not use images of birds that are pets, captives, or of injured/rehab birds, stuffed mounts, or birds that are otherwise restrained.

Image Quality

Images should be in sharp focus, color should be accurate, exposure should be perfect or nearly so, and the subject should be large in the image frame. When selecting images for submission, it's to your advantage to be extra selective.

Here are some specifics for your submission:
