Ocean Exposures Photo Contest 2012

Ocean Exposures Photo Contest 2012

You don’t need to be a professional photographer to enter the Ocean Exposures photo contest. Just let the inner shutterbug in you fly free on your summer adventures and shoot some beautiful photos of the ocean that you love so much.

Entries must be recent (2011 onward) and must be taken on or near one of Canada’s three oceans — except for the Keep It Clean interactive map photos which can be from anywhere in Canada. Living Oceans Society uses the photo contest entries in our print and web publications to inspire people to learn about the ocean and what they can do to protect it.

The Ocean Exposures photo contest runs from June 21, 2012 until September 30, 2012. The winner will be announced on October 25, 2012. Entries will be judged on: exposure, composition, uniqueness, creativity and technical proficiency. You can see current entries on our Living Oceans Friends Flickr site.

Eligibility: Canada excluding Quebec

Free to Enter

Prizes: Two Mountain Equipment Co-op Gift Cards valued at $100; Two Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics gift cards valued $125; a limited edition 17″x22″ print by photographer Dan Hillert valued at $300; one pair of Mantaray dive fins from Nanaimo Dive Outfitters valued at $170.

Copyright: With regard to any photograph submitted to this contest, the entrant, or the owner of copyright in the photograph, retains copyright.
