Congratulations to our 2015 winners!

Over 600 photos were submitted to the 2015 Wildlife-In-Focus Photography Contest! There were so many great pictures of B.C.’s wild animals that it was very difficult for the judges to pick only a few to highlight, so thank you for all the entries. Participants helped to raise $4,085 for wild animals in need!

Check out this great slideshow of our winners and honourable mentions, and don't forget to check out our WOW slideshow too!

British Columbia is such an amazing place for amateur wildlife photographers - View our 2015 WOW slideshow - a selection of non-prize winning photos from the 2015 contest that just made us say WOW what a great place we live in! Check our all our past contest winners from 2009-2014.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2015 contest! Choosing among the all entries was a very difficult task given the high quality and diversity of images submitted from all over the province. However, we do want to recognize the winners that were selected by a panel of independent judges.

The 2015 W-I-F contest would not have been possible without the tremendous volunteer assistance of Isabelle Fraser as 2015 Photo Contest Coordinator and the help of our independent judges.
