The 2020 Cullinan Park Photo Contest drew entries from across the greater Houston area – stunning images of wildlife, flora and scenery found at the 754-acre nature park. Photographers shared their vision and experiences, many of which were captured as people turned to nature for peace and solace during a tumultuous time.

Thank you to our distinguished panel of judges – Mary Favre, John Whitt and Rod Craig, all talented photographers. They reviewed the 258 entries and chose first through third place winners in each category. First place winners will be awarded a $50 credit to the Cullinan online store and second place winners a $25 credit. 

“This year was very challenging,” said judge Mary Favre. “There were so many creative entries that showcased a variety of viewpoints and photography styles. The beauty of Cullinan and its abundance of wildlife really came shining through. It’s an exceptional place for residents to enjoy.”

According to CPC Board Member and Contest Coordinator Robbin Mallett, the wildlife category is the most popular. “We had 105 entries in the adult Wildlife category. There were so many amazing photos, I hated to only recognize three, so I split the photos into two categories for judging - Birds and Wildlife. There were 67 bird photos entered that featured 27 different species. The top three by far were the Little Blue Heron (16), Common Gallinule (12) and Purple Gallinule (8). Wildlife photos featured alligators, spiders, dragonflies, insects, frogs, snakes, snails, turtles, armadillos and one butterfly. The landscape category was dominated by shots taken of or from the boardwalk and observation tower followed by scenes from Oyster Creek and the trails. WINNERS CLICK HERE
