Elbow River Watershed Partnership Announces Its Canada 150 Photo Contest


The ERWP is celebrating Canada 150 by holding a photo contest in 2017. Our goal is to showcase the best photographs of the Elbow River watershed, including the river itself, wildlife, recreation, natural history, environment, culture and people. Each image should convey something evocative about the watershed and what the watershed means to you.

Entry Deadline: Tuesday, October 31, 2017

We require your submitted digital image and completed entry form by October 31, 2017.


Selection Process

All entries will be considered by a panel of judges appointed by the ERWP. The finalists will be announced in the ERWP’s December 2017 newsletter.

What to Submit

Your digital submission must be no larger than 2 MB. The photograph may originate in any format, but must be submitted in .jpg format. Information supplied must include the location and date of photograph (does not have to be taken in 2017) and details of the subject matter. Please include your name and name of the photo in the filename. A completed entry form must accompany the photograph.

Who Can Submit

This contest is open to all who have an interest in the Elbow River Watershed.

How to Submit/Entry Period

The digital photograph and completed entry form must be submitted between Tuesday, May 23, 2017 and Tuesday, October 31, 2017, by emailing both to coordinator@erwp.org with the subject line “2017 Photo Contest.” You may submit more than one photograph, each with a separate entry form.


Prizes will be awarded to one Grand Prize Winner and two Runners-Up, plus five Honorable Mentions.


If you have questions about the contest, please contact Flora Giesbrecht, our ERWP coordinator, at coordinator@erwp.org.
