Comox Valley Land Trust’s annual photography contest now accepting entries

The Comox Valley Land Trust’s third annual photography contest is now accepting entries. Kevin Moldenhauer’s photograph of a chocolate tube slime mould was the winner of last year’s photo contest.

The Comox Valley Land Trust’s third annual photo contest, celebrating the beauty and significance of nature in the Valley, is now accepting entries.

The purpose of the contest is to highlight the beauty and importance of nature in the Valley.

Aside from recognizing outstanding images of local flora, fauna, and landscapes, there’s a special prize dedicated to celebrating the Puntledge Forest. This one-time award is meant to draw attention to the CVLT’s forthcoming campaign aimed at safeguarding the final portion of this crucial forested area.

Regardless of experience level, all photographers are encouraged to participate. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, this contest offers a chance to showcase your skills and potentially win fantastic prizes.

Entries will be accepted until May 31, with submissions welcome in various categories, including nature shots and images showcasing outdoor activities like biking, hiking, swimming, tubing, and horse riding in the Puntledge Forest area. The judging panel, comprised of three local photographers, will determine the winners.

Prizes include a $750 gift card from London Drugs for the first-place winner, two alpine lift tickets and two days of equipment rental from Mount Washington Alpine Resort for the second-place winner, and a four-hour rental of two tandem kayaks from Comox Valley Kayaks and Canoes for the third-place winner. Additionally, the winner of the special Puntledge Forest category will receive a $500 gift card from London Drugs.

Beyond the prizes, the contest serves as an opportunity to celebrate the natural wonders of the Valley. As a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring nature, the Comox Valley Land Trust has been instrumental in safeguarding over 600 hectares of ecologically significant land since its inception in 1999.
