Altacal Audubon Society to host traveling exhibit of winning photographs – Red Bluff Daily News


Altacal Audubon Society will host the 2022 Audubon Photography Awards Traveling Exhibit at five different locations in Butte, Glenn and Tehama counties.

Each exhibition will last one night only. Visitors can enjoy an exhibit of the spectacular winning images and videos and learn about local bird life in the northern Sacramento Valley. Reproductions of the winning photos will be available for sale.

In the 13th year of the contest, winning photos, videos and honorable mentions were selected from 2,416 entrants from all 50 states, Washington DC and 7 Canadian provinces and territories to appreciate the wonders of birds and the places that ‘they live.

The competition continued to award the female bird prize and the video prize, which were successfully introduced last year. The Female Bird Prize shines a light on female birds, which are often overlooked and undervalued in bird photography and conservation. The video award recognizes the dynamic movement and behavior of birds and how we see and commemorate them.

In addition, the winning photographs from Altacal’s local photo contest will be exhibited. The local contest features photographers who live in Butte, Glenn or Tehama counties and bird photographs that were taken in those three counties.

These events are free and open to the public. All participants will receive a free raffle ticket for a chance to win a pair of Vortex binoculars.

The exhibit will be held in Red Bluff from 5-8:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21 at the Sacramento River Discovery Center, 1000 Sale Lane.

Other stops include Friday, October 14, 5-8:30 p.m. at the Willows Library, 201 N. Lassen St.; 3:30-6:30 p.m. Saturday, October 15 at the Altacal Audubon Society office, 635 Flume St. in Chico; 5:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, October 22 at the Oroville Library Conference Room, 1820 Mitchell Ave.
