The Friends of Fish Creek are excited to offer our Capture Nature Photography Contest for the fourth year in a row!  Capture Nature offers a fun and creative opportunity for park users to engage with their natural surroundings as they search and explore for the best images of the year!  The contest is also part of the Friends “Social Enterprise” programming, with all proceeds going to support our stewardship and education activities in Fish Creek Provincial Park. 

This year, an exciting change to the contest will allow for the public to vote on-line for their favourite photos!  Contest participants are eligible for some amazing prizes from the Friends of Fish Creek and from our sponsors, MEC and Vistek.  Photo images will also be considered as silent auction items for our annual fall fundraiser, A Taste of Autumn.

Capture Nature 2018 runs from May 1 to July 31, registration opens May 1.

Submit one photo to a different theme each month:

  • May – Serenity in Nature
  • June – Reflections
  • July – Summer Colour

Prizes  awarded for both favourite Public Choice and Juror Choice!

Adults – $25, Youth (up to 17 years of age) – FREE!
