Pitt Meadows’ Jodi Wilton snapped this amazing
photo that snagged her first place in the BC SPCA’s 2016 Wildlife-In-Focus
photography contest in the Backyard Habitats category.
Participants were encouraged to submit photos into one of two categories:
Backyard Habitats, in order to highlight our special relationship with wild
animals in our backyards, and amazing Wild Settings that feature animals in
their natural habitats.
“With more than 700 photos submitted, it was a challenge for the contest
judges to highlight only a few of the many amazing photos celebrating B.C.’s
diverse wildlife,” says BC SPCA chief scientific officer Dr. Sara Dubois.
“We want to thank all the participants for sharing their amazing photos and
helping to raise more than $13,800 for wild animals in need.”
First prize winners in both judged categories will be featured in the Spring
2017 Animal Sense magazine and the top three in each category will receive
great prizes that may include gifts from Broadway Camera, Beaty Biodiversity
Museum, Canadian Geographic, Canadian Art, Greystone Books, Lens & Shutter
Vancouver, LUSH, the Lab Vancouver, NatureKids BC, Outdoor Photography
Canada, the Royal BC Museum, or a Wild ARC prize pack.
Check out the winners online at

by amateur photographers across British Columbia.
