Capture the Wild Photography Contest
Contest dates: February 1 - 28
The Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (CWRS) is raising awareness and funds through their first annual photography contest. Amateur photographers (defined as earning less than 25% of their annual income from taking/selling photographs) are encouraged to submit their best untouched photos of native Southern Albertan wildlife in their native habitat (no zoo shots!). There are over 400 species of wild animals that call Calgary home, so native habitat can include yards, parks and other city spaces. No shots of humans interacting with wildlife please! Photographs will be judged on technical skill, content, overall aesthetic, and ability to capture the essence of the animal being photographed. Winning photographers will win gift certificates, equipment and more! To read the official rules, see our sponsors, and enter please visit www.calgarywildlife.org/photo-contest
