2019 Customer Photo Contest

Best of 2011-15     2016     2017     2018     2019     2020

Each month, we choose one customer photo to be displayed in our email newsletter, on the website, and in the store. The winner will receive a $25 credit at the store. The photograph must contain a bird - and that is the only requirement! You are welcome to submit up to three pictures each month. Potential judgment criteria include: beauty, composition, species rarity, situational interest, humor, or ostentatious display of WBU products. Please email pictures to [email protected]

Please note that this contest is intended for San Francisco Bay Area residents and that store credit can only be redeemed at our Novato location.
