2017-18 Tennessee Wildlife’s Calendar Contest Winners Selected

NASHVILLE --- The winning entries for the 2017-18 Tennessee Wildlife magazine photo contest have been selected by staff members of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. The selections will appear in the annual calendar issue of the magazine which will be available in early July.

The staff selected the winning photographs from hundreds of submissions and had the challenge to narrow the entries to 13 photos that will appear in the calendar issue. The 2017-18 calendar will begin with the month of August. Other entries will be kept on file and could have the opportunity to appear in future agency publications and on the agency’s website.

The photographers with the winning 2017-18 entries are Paul Bay (Greenback), Ray Gobernatz (Palmyra), Ralph Hensley (Hiltons, Va.), Ron Jackson (Clarksville), Becky McRae (Bartlett), Holly Nelson (Rockwood), Richard Powers (Louisville, Tenn.), Brian Shults (Greenback), Rick Small (Rock Hill, S.C.), and Nicole Witzel (Nashville).

The staff of Tennessee Wildlife offers congratulations to all of the winners and reminds photographers that if your photo was not chosen this year, your next year’s entry could be a winner.  Rules and deadlines for the 2018-19 Tennessee Wildlife photo contest will appear in future  issues of the magazine and also in the fall on the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s website, www.tnwildlife.org. Photographers will again be invited to submit their best photos on fishing and wildlife species native to the Volunteer State, and fishing and hunting scenes in Tennessee.
