• Photo Winners Chosen - 2018 Dates Set

    The Eagles & Ag Steering Committee, in their best judge's robes, have selected the winners of the 2017 Eagles & Ag Photo Contest. In the Birding/Eagle category, they chose an image of a very focused mature bald eagle from Gardnerville photographer Dwayne Hicks. In the Wildlife/Ag category, a portrait of a mother and calf from Merry Muller, also from Gardnerville was chosen the best of the lot. Both photographers will receive a $125 award, courtesy of Contest sponsor Legacy Land & Water.

    The Judges also chose to recognize a photo by 9 year old Drake Wilkins, the youngest entrant ever in our contest, with a special award of merit.
    Drake won't get any cash, but Jim Woods of Birding Under Nevada Skies has offered him a private birding trip and he can even bring a parent.

    The winning photos are below as are all of the entries for this year. We thank all the talented photographers who shared their work with us!

    The 2018 Eagles & Ag event will be held January 25 to 28, 2018. If you would like to receive e-mail notification when reservations for that event are open, please click here to send us a note. If you have attended in the past, you are already on that list to be notified.
