Photo Contest 2023

Get published in the Santa Fe Reporter, and win prizes!


We’ll award prizes from local restaurants and retailers for two winners in each category. Selected photos are printed in a February edition of SFR and are featured in a pop-up event benefiting student training by the New Mexico Fund for Public Interest Journalism.




Faces: Expressive, engaged people and animals. Please get permission from subjects when applicable.


Places: Outdoors and the built environment. Enough with the churches and the statues already. What else do you see?


Movement: Candid shots of action. Machines, dancers, atoms?


Odd: Weird, genre defying, not Photoshopped but funky. This is the wild card category.
