Participants competed in two categories: Backyard Habitats, highlighting our special relationship with wild animals in our backyards and Wild Settings, images that feature animals in their natural habitats.

“With almost 600 photos submitted, it was a challenge for the contest judges to highlight only a few of the many amazing photos celebrating B.C.’s diverse wildlife,” said BC SPCA research coordinator Erin Ryan in a news release. “We want to thank all the participants for sharing their amazing photos and helping to raise more than $17,500 for wild animals in need.”

First prize winners in both judged categories will be featured in the spring 2019 Animal Sense magazine and the top three in each category will receive great prizes that may include gifts from Canadian Geographic, Canadian Art, Greystone Books, Lens & Shutter Vancouver, LUSH, NatureKids BC, Outdoor Photography Canada, or a Wild ARC prize pack.
