The theme for our second competition for 2021 is Cranes, Storks, Crakes, Rails and Swamphens.  There should be something for everyone here.

This competition is open to members for submission of entries until 6pm EST on Monday 24th May 2021.  Images must have been taken during the last three years (that is, on or after 5th April 2018).  Up to four of your best images may be submitted.  Images submitted to previous competitions, or to the New Images gallery, may be submitted to this competition; if you choose to do this, you must resubmit the image to the competition gallery; images cannot be moved from another existing gallery.  See the Photo Gallery - Competitions section for full details and rules of our competitions, and quick access to the current competition galleries.  As usual, there are three competition levels: Entry, Intermediate and Advanced.  Please refer to the  Photo Gallery - Competitions - Competition Levels - Guidelines page for more details.  All three levels will be open to member voting at the close of submissions, and a Mystery Reviewer will judge all levels.
