The popular annual Florida Birding and Photo Fest is going to be held again next year, from April 24-28, 2019 on Florida’s Historic Coast at St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra.
This is a huge festival with many highlights.
The large number of exhibitions gives you an opportunity to see up close the latest gear and birding products from leading companies.
For those wanting to get into the action side of things though there’s so much more: the festival has workshops and classroom sessions covering all sorts of topics related to bird photography and birding in general. These are run by highly respected photographers who converge on the Florida fest to share their skills and knowledge.
As you might expect, a birding and photo festival of this scope has to include a photography contest. There are always many stunning entries and there’s no doubt the judges must have a tough time choosing a few winners. This is a high quality photo competition that a lot of very skilled bird photographers enter. The overall winner receives a great prize as well; last year it was a Sigma telephoto lens.
You can stay up to date on the latest announcements for the festival at the Florida Birding & Photo Fest Facebook page.
