Prizes up for grabs for best photos of Canada's lakes

Photo contest for lakes

Amateur photographers can capture prizes by submitting photos of their favourite lakes to Living Lakes Canada.

The B.C.-based non-profit is holding its second-annual biodiversity photo challenge to celebrate the beauty of Canada’s two million lakes. The contest is also raising awareness around climate change impacts threatening their biodiversity.

Lake photographers have until the end of July to participate. Photos can be submitted using the online submission form at lakeblitz.livinglakescanada.ca or by email to [email protected], or by using #LakeBlitzPhoto on social media. All photos will be displayed in an online gallery and the best of each week will be shared on Living Lakes Canada’s social media channels.

Everyone who enters will be eligible to win in four different categories: most biodiverse, most impacted, public favourite, and a kids category.

The winners in the first three categories will receive prize packs that include products from contest sponsors: Kicking Horse Coffee, Lush Cosmetics and DAVIDsTEA.

Winners of the most biodiverse and most impacted category will be chosen by Living Lakes Canada and the public favourite will be selected based on social media likes. The kids category winner will be selected by the kids' conservation organization Earth Rangers and awarded a kid-friendly prize pack that's age appropriate and awesome. All winners will be announced in early August.
