Calling All Shutterbugs!
Are you lucky enough to see wildlife in your neck of the woods? What wildlife encounters [en/action/your-voice/stories] have you been able to capture with a click of your camera? Now’s your chance to show us your stuff! Sending a photo is one of many ways to give to CWF that will help us in our mission to spread awareness and educate Canadians about native wildlife and wild spaces.
Send us your photos
Selected photographs will be featured on the Canadian Wildlife Federation's website and/or other CWF publications. Monthly winners will receive a signed print by Canadian artist Robert Bateman [en/learn/contests/bateman] and runners-up will receive a CWF prize pack. A grand prize (to be determined) will be awarded early 2008. Check out the contest details
