2017 Online Spring 10/150 Photo Contest

Outdoor Photography Canada magazine is celebrating its 10th year in publication, but even better than that, Canada is celebrating its 150th year as a country! We decided to combine these two momentous occasions into one awesome photo contest.

Theme: What is canada?

From its wide-open spaces and friendly, multi-cultural diversity to its wildlife and efforts in conservation and peace, Canada is many things. You decide what Canada is to you, and show us in one perfectly executed photo. There’s a $15 entry fee (includes taxes), with up to 10 photos uploaded to our website gallery per entry. An additional entry fee is required for 11-20 photos. Maximum two entries (20 photos) per person. Your name and photo location MUST be clearly marked on each file name or in the EXIF data.

Contest deadline: June 30, 2017
