It’s that time of year again; The Buffalo Zoo Photo Contest presented by the Women’s Board of the Buffalo Zoo is back! 

Entires are now closed but now it’s time to cast your vote to select the best from 2022! The People’s Choice category returns along with a second category: Zoomagination!

First, second, and third place prizes of $100, $75, and $50 respectively will be determined by online voting that runs now until February 28, 2023. Get all your friends and family in on the fun by having them vote on your photos with proceeds supporting your Buffalo Zoo!
