Nature Canada / Initiatives / Nature Canada’s 75th Anniversary Photo Contest!

We have a winner!

Thank you to all who submitted photos for Nature Canada’s 75th Anniversary Photo Contest and also a special thanks to our panel of celebrity judges who helped select the top images. The top images went through a public online voting process and we are happy to announce that the grand prize winner is Monte Comeau and his photo submission of a loon and its chick.
Monte’s photo will grace the cover of Nature Canada’s 75th Anniversary Calendar and he will also receive an amazing Tenquille Lake Expedition package generously provided by Copper Cayuse Outfitters. Runner-ups for the photo contest will be contacted and prize arrangements will be made. We invite you to stay tuned for our next photo contest! 



These wonderful photos deserve a special mention since they were amongst the top five photos in the contest.

About the contest

Nature Canada is celebrating its 75th anniversary this September! As a start to our year-long festivities, we are launching a photography contest. It’s a simple way for you, your family and friends to enjoy nature whether nearby in your NatureHood, at your cottage or during your summer vacation. From June 1st to August 31st, you can share your nature photos with us. A select few will be chosen by our panel of judges, and will be posted on the Nature Canada website in September for voting by the public.  This contest is open to members of Nature Canada as well as youth, amateur and professional photographers. If you need some ideas, here are the categories into which you may submit your photos: Kids in Nature, Favorite Memory in Nature, Nature Nearby, Wild Nature, Favorite Place in Canada, Landscapes, or Fauna and Flora. We have a number of incredible prizes! The most noteworthy being our top prize of a Tenquille Lake Expedition graciously donated by Copper Cayuse Outfitters! For full rules, please see our rules and regulations.
