Red River Zoo

2021 Photo Contest

Bring along your camera when you visit the Red River Zoo!

Get a great shot and enter your photo in the Calendar Photo Contest. Selected entries will be voted upon, and the top photos will be featured in the 2021 Red River Zoo calendar!

Each selected photographer will also be awarded a prize. Runner-up photos may also be featured in the 2021 calendar.

How to Enter

To enter the photo contest, please upload your photo(s) to Flickr. Search for the “Red River Zoo Photo Contest 2021” group and submit you photo(s).

The deadline for entries is October 1, 2020.


By entering the contest, you are granting permission to the Red River Zoological Society to use the submitted photograph for any promotion in relation to the photo contest and/or the Red River Zoo, including, but not limited to, printed literature, signs, or images on the web.  Whenever possible and appropriate, you will be given photo credit for your image.

When capturing images at the Zoo, please keep in mind that it is against Zoo policy to tap on the glass, yell at animals, or in any other manner harass the animals in order to get their attention.  Our animals are naturally photogenic and they won’t miss an opportunity to ham it up for photographers.

A few notes to keep in mind:

  • Your image must be in a digital format, preferably JPEG, to be entered in the contest.
  • To be utilized in the calendar, the image must be at least 300 DPI and must be large enough to cover a calendar page (9.5″ x 13.5″)
  • Images that captured horizontally will be more suitable for use, especially in close-up photographs, but any image may be entered.
If you have any questions about the photo contest, you may e-mail the Zoo.
