The ABMI Photo Contest is Back!

It’s time to dust off your camera lenses and start snapping images: the ABMI’s second-annual photo contest is back! Help us tell the story of Alberta’s species, habitats and human land use through the most powerful storytelling tool: photography.

We want to see what your Alberta looks like. Show us the biodiversity that lives in your backyard, the view from your favourite look-out point, or a close-up shot of your favourite species. Enter your photos of Alberta’s species and habitats for a chance to win great prizes, including a GoPro camera and a McBain Camera gift certificate, not to mention a chance to see your photos used in ABMI products (we’ll give you the credit, of course!)

Contest runs June 15 – September 50, 2015. Online voting (for our two “fan favourite” prizes) runs September 20-30, 2015.

Read contest rules, browse entries and enter your photos on the ABMI Photo Contest page.
