Photographers were invited to submit up to three photos of animals from Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, from current or previous years. Judges are Patrick Comins, executive director of the Connecticut Audubon Society; Jesse Thompson, co-owner of Milford Photo; and Roger Salls, owner of Roger Salls Photography.

In addition to the judged photos, a People’s Choice will be selected. The general public can vote on their favorite that evening by making a one-dollar donation for each vote.
