Is your camera ready?

The BC SPCA’s seventh annual Wildlife-In-Focus Photography Contest is now open for entries. The goal is to capture the best of British Columbia’s wildlife through the lens, whether the subjects are in your own backyard or in the vast natural wilderness of the province.

All amateur photographers 14 and up can enter the competition, which runs from July 1 through Sept. 30, by submitting their most impressive digital images.

The contest supports the BC SPCA’s Wild Animal rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC) on southern Vancouver Island, where more than 2,500 orphaned and injured wild animals are cared for each year.

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

Photos must be taken within B.C. and submitted digitally.

Learn more about this year’s contest and view past winners’ images at spca.bc.ca/wildlife-in-focus.

For more information, email contest@wildarc.com.
