The Editor’s Assignment is back in time for Spring Break! And now that one of our own, wildlife photography columnist John E. Marriott, has launched a web series (exposedwithjohnemarriott.com) about conservation issues facing Canadian wildlife and protected areas, your assignment is to create an image that tells a story about a Conservation issue near and dear to your heart here in Canada. It can be anything ranging from a landscape shot of your favourite hiking area that fell victim to logging, to a photo from your ongoing projects at your local wildlife rehab centre or a shot of a species at risk in a threatening situation (like John’s photo in our banner of a grizzly bear on the rail tracks in Banff). Think outside the box and get as creative as you can, just make sure your one photo tells a story about conservation in some manner. Good luck!
First Round: Initial judging will take place during upload. If your image is chosen as a first round qualifier it will appear in the gallery. All others will be deleted. Typically entries are judged within 24hrs of upload.
Second Round: Finalist judging will take place immediately upon closing of the assignment. Three finalists will be notified for hi resolution images for further judging.
Final Round: A winner will be chosen from the finalists and contacted.
Prizes: The winning image will be published in the Summer (July 2016) issue of OPC and will receive this 12″x18″ signed print from John E. Marriott.
Each participant can only upload one image per assignment, so make it your absolute best shot.
