A picture is worth a thousand words.
We’d prefer a photo that leaves us
Winning photos will be selected in five categories:
Connecting with Nature:
Photos of Canadians of all ages enjoying nature through exploration, relaxation, adventure, family and sport. Show us your explorations in nature. Examples: photo of child on a hike, friends in a canoe, swimming in your lake or schools doing a habitat clean-up.
Showcasing Canada’s vast and beautiful wilderness through the eye of the beholder. Examples: mountains, sunsets, skyline, waterfalls or open natural spaces.
Focus on Fauna:
Capturing wildlife in Canada, from the smallest of creatures to the largest of mammals. Example: any species of Canadian wildlife, terrestrial or marine.
Exploring the beauty of Canada’s native and non-native plants of all shapes, sizes and colours. Examples: water drop on a leaf, flower in bloom or a tree in the heart of winter.
Dedicated to the intersection of Nature and Canadians within our cities and urban spaces. Show us your favourite greenspace, your urban oasis, or a surprising encounter with beautiful wildlife in an urban setting.
