2017 HCTF Photo Contest Winners

The judges have made their decision and the winners of the 2017 HCTF photo contest have been named! We received hundreds of entries showcasing BC's fish, wildlife and habitats, but in the end, it was three incredible bird photos that swept the podium.  Devon Yu's perfectly-timed photo of a pileated woodpecker feeding its chicks was chosen as the grand prize winner, and photos by Ben Nelms and Sheldon Bilsker were selected as the runners-up.
