HCTF Photo Contest Starts Today!

The HCTF photo contest is now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry. We will be announcing winners on our website on or before January 31st, 2015, and will also be featuring some of our favourite photos in the Winter edition of our newsletter.


The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation is holding its first ever photo contest! We’re looking for spectacular images of British Columbia’s fish, wildlife and habitats, or people outdoors enjoying these resources. Specifically, HCTF is looking for photos of:

  • Freshwater fish (species native to BC)
  • BC wildlife (terrestrial and freshwater, not in captivity)
  • BC landscapes where freshwater fish and wildlife are found, including lakes, rivers, wetlands, forests, and grasslands.
  • Fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing and outdoor education.

Our favorite three images will win VISA gift cards, and be featured on our website. Please note that entries may also be used by HCTF in future communications materials.


The winning entries will be selected by a panel established by HCTF. Each photo shall be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit. Winners will be announced on the Foundation’s website by January 31st, 2015.


Entries must be received by 4:30pm PST on November 14th, 2014.

Full contest rules (including prize information) are available here.
