Winners will be announced in August

The Lake Biodiversity Photo Challenge is the sister event to the National Lake Blitz that celebrates the beauty of lakes in Canada and raises awareness around what’s threatening their incredible biodiversity. This year’s Photo Challenge is in partnership with the Canadian Conservation Photographers Collective.

Everyone who enters is eligible to win! New this year, we’ve partnered with Nikon Canada Ambassador and Kase Filters Global Ambassador Viktoria Haack to offer the grand prize of an online photography workshop for winners. Winners will also receive age-appropriate prizes provided by gift sponsors LUSH Cosmetics, Kicking Horse Coffee and Laykhaus Candles.
