May 15,2018– Visit the Central Washington University Sammamish campus between June 8 and June 22 to walk among the winning bird photographs from this year’s Audubon Photography Awards and learn more about your local birdlife.  The exhibit will be staffed by knowledgeable bird experts on Thursdays and Fridays from 4-8 pm and Saturdays from 12-4 pm. 

Selected from more than 5,500 entries, the winning photos were published in the Summer 2017 issue of Audubon Magazine and show birdlife at its most vivid, vulnerable, formidable, and elegant. Photographers from 49 states and eight Canadian provinces submitted images in three categories: professional, amateur, and youth. A panel of five judges had the daunting task of sifting through the stunning images and grading them based on technical quality, originality, and artistic merit.

A jointly sponsored exhibit between Central Washington University and Eastside Audubon, about half the birds featured face significant impacts from climate change. These images both awe and inspire, as well as educate attendees about their subjects.

“This is a truly amazing and spectacular exhibit. These images are not to be missed.  We thank Central Washington University for partnering with us to make sure that these images can be viewed by everyone on the Eastside. The venue provides the opportunity to bring together diverse groups, such as students, the community, and environmentalists, to view these magnificent birds,” says Eastside Audubon’s Executive Director. “We cannot thank CWU enough for their commitment to this exhibition and its message.”
