Photo contest to celebrate International Tiger Day

July 1, 2020

Tigers in America and the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries are pleased to announce a photo and video contest to celebrate International Tiger Day, July 29, 2020.

The contest provides a platform for visual storytellers to highlight the plight of tigers living in captivity in the United States and promote the rescue of tigers to the protected safety of a true sanctuary.  The contest, which aims to identify the best photo or video of a tiger in the U.S., based on overall beauty, power, photographic skill, creativity, and how well it represents the tiger, is open to all entrants with special consideration given to entries from college students enrolled in “tiger mascot schools”.

The contest runs until July 24, 2020, with winners announced on July 29, 2020.  Prizes include $1,000 for the winning submission and $100 each for 10 runners-up.  Winning submissions will also be posted on the Tigers in America and GFAS websites and social media.
