Capture Nature Photo Contest – May 1 to July 31

Let the beauty of Fish Creek Provincial Park inspire your photographic creativity in this friendly competition to capture the best park photo of the year!  In its 5th year, the Friends’ Capture Nature Photo Contest is a great excuse for anyone with an interest in photography – youth and adult alike – to visit the park on a regular basis in the hunt for the best reflection of this year’s new and inspiring themes:

  • Symmetry   
  • Lunch!  
  • Movement

Participants are eligible for amazing prizes from our contest sponsors and will also have their images considered as silent auction items at our annual fall fundraiser – A Taste of Autumn – as well as a fall exhibit at the Cookhouse from October to December as part of our new Fish Creek Community Showcase!

All photos must be taken in Fish Creek Provincial Park and can be submitted at any point during the contest, but the earlier the better!  The public will be able to vote for their favourite photos through our on-line gallery, so early submissions will have more time to collect votes! 

Enter for your chance to win one of these amazing prizes!

Adult Prizes:

  • $100 MEC Gift Card
  • Two tickets to Friends of Fish Creek Ghost Tour ($15 value)
  • Friends of Fish Creek Birding Course Registration ($100 value)

Youth Prizes:

  • $25 MEC Gift Card
  • Two-hour private photography class with RMB Photography ($150 value)

Are you up for the challenge?!  $25 registration fee for adults, free for youth 17 years of age or under!  Register through Eventbrite.  Registration opens May 1st.

Please be sure to read the contest Rules and Regulations prior to registering.

Thank you to this year’s sponsors, MEC and RMB Photography!

Anyone can vote for their favorite Capture Nature photo through our on-line gallery!  Simply enter your email address to enter, then view the different folders to see the photos.  To vote, click on the star that appears when you hover over each photo (or de-select the star if you want to change your vote).
