Event Calendar

Welcome to the ICF Pro-Am Tournament Schedule!

This popular “weekend” tournament series is growing by leaps and bounds, benefiting photographers, land owners and wildlife alike.  Every Pro-Am puts you on a private ranch professionally set-up for wildlife photography, with a professional photographer to “coach” you throughout a 4-day 4-nite learning tournament where your images are scored by some of the biggest wildlife photo editors in the country.

We’ve been hard at work getting the right combination of beautiful ranches and skilled professionals together to give you the best possible experience, and we are happy to say that we’ve succeeded.  We are also adding even more “big” names to our panel of judges, giving you the kind of feedback that we all want.  Look through the schedule below, and we’re sure that you’ll find just the right Pro-Am for you.

Attending an ICF Pro-Am is one of the most direct things you can do to contribute to the conservation of wildlife and native habitat.  Photography dollars on private lands give economic value to all wildlife and native habitat, and a portion of your Pro-Am fees is a charitable donation that may entitle you to a tax deduction.  Sign up today and join us for your next Pro-Am where “Your Images are Their Future.”

Note: We will be adding more dates to meet the demand for these tournaments, please check back for updates.
