Suggestions for Photos

  • Only vertically-oriented photos will be considered.
  • You must have the original photo in high-resolution and send it to us if you are contacted as a finalist. We will not publish it in print without your permission.
  • If your photo is selected as a finalist, you will be expected to sign a document confirming that you are in fact the photographer and/or you have the photographer’s permission to submit the photo and have it published.
  • Photos can be of a hunter (or hunters), a live whitetail deer in the field, or a trophy photo of a hunter with a deer they have harvested. Still life and landscape photos with no deer are unlikely to be selected as finalists.
  • Each cover we print has the Whitetail Journal logo running across the top of the image. Keep in mind that we can only select as finalists photos which do not have a major focal point of the image filling that space (except antlers, which are OK!).

More Contests

If your photo lands on the cover of Whitetail Journal magazine, you’ll win a new 20-quart RUGID cooler! These roto-molded coolers come with a 5-year warranty, maximum ice retention, cam lock latches and 100% replaceable parts. RUGID coolers are extremely durable and stack up against other premium coolers, but at a more affordable cost.
