The Utica Zoo has been blessed over the course of our history with many things. 2 of those amazing blessings have been the beauty of the animals in our care and the talented photographers who visit throughout the year to photograph our animals. As we get closer to leaving 2020 behind, our 2021 calendar is in the works and we want to feature our talented photographers as part of the calendar!

Gather your best photos and submit them for consideration for our 2021 Calendar Photo Contest! 12 winners will have their photos featured in the calendar to bring the Utica Zoo into the homes of our visitors all year round. Here are the details:

-Photos must be submitted by 12pm on October 28, 2020.

-Photos should be cropped to 8.5″ x 11″ in landscape orientation. JPEG files should be sent at no lower than 300dpi.

-Submitted photos should be taken at the Utica Zoo.

-Photos will be judged by a third-party panel of judges based on aesthetic merit.

-Each photo submission will require a $10 non-refundable entry fee. Entry fees and final sale proceeds will directly benefit the overall care of our animals.

-Winners will be announced on November 2, 2020, with the calendars becoming available for sale in the Utica Zoo Gift Shop on November 25, 2020.

-One first-place winner will receive a family membership to the Utica Zoo, in addition to having their photo featured on the cover of the calendar. 11 additional winners will receive a 4-pack of day passes to the Utica Zoo.
