This year marks the sixth annual

Eye for The Wild amateur photography contest, which launches on World Wildlife Day (March 3rd). 
World Wildlife Day is a United Nations International day to celebrate all the wild animals around the globe and the contribution that they make to our lives. 
In Alberta, we are fortunate to share our spaces with hundreds of different species of wildlife. To celebrate their beauty and contributions to the ecosystem, dust off your cameras and get to snapping!
The contest runs from March 3rd to April 15th. 

Ethical wildlife photography practices are expected of our applicants. Learn more here
