BC SPCA invites amateur photographers to take wildlife photos

Sixth annual Wildlife-In-Focus Photography Contest open until Sept. 30

Amateur photographers are invited to submit their best digital wildlife shots to the BC SPCA’s sixth annual Wildlife-In-Focus Photography Contest.

The contest – which runs through Sept. 30 – supports the society’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre on Vancouver Island, where nearly 2,500 orphaned and injured wild animals are cared for every year.

“We are excited to help British Columbia’s wildlife photographers showcase the amazing diversity of animals we have throughout our province, in both urban settings and isolated locations,” Sara Dubois, chief scientific officer for BC SPCA, said in a news release. “The images we receive each year are stunning and really make it hard for judges to choose the winning photos.”

Photos entered in previous contests have been featured in the BC SPCA’s Animal Sense and Bark! magazines, as well as in educational materials, local newspapers, websites and social media.

Prizes are awarded for the top three photos in each of two categories: Wild Settings and Backyard Habitats.

The competition is open to amateur photographers aged 14 and up. All submissions must be taken within the province and submitted digitally.

Photos of exotic, feral or domestic animals will not be accepted, nor will images of wildlife in zoos or rehabilitation facilities.
