BC Goes Wild 2022 Photo Contest

 

The BC Goes Wild Photo Contest returns this year with two categories:

BC Wildlife

and

Keeping Wildlife Wild

The winner of each category will receive $100 plus a WildSafeBC ball cap!

WildSafeBC invites everyone in British Columbia to join us in celebrating the 7th Annual BC Goes Wild this September. September is historically a month where human-bear conflicts are at their highest. BC Goes Wild coincides with this month to bring awareness to these issues while also promoting ways we can live, work, play and grow in wildlife country. Local WildSafeBC Community Coordinators will be hosting events in their communities which will include activities such as nature walks, fruit presses, bear spray demonstrations, wildlife art and more. No matter where you live in BC, you can participate by entering our BC Goes Wild Photo Contest or by sharing your WildSafe activities by tagging us online @wildsafebc.

The BC Goes Wild Photo Contest is back for 2022 with 2 categories! Please review our Contest Rules before submitting your photos. If your photos contain images of people, a Model Release Form needs to be completed and submitted with your entry. The Contest will be running September 1 to September 30 and there is no limit on the number of entries you can submit. Scroll to the bottom for pictures of our winning entries from 2021.

Thank you for participating in our contest and celebrating the amazing wildlife we have in our Province.
