In 2013 the Allan Brooks Nature Centre hosted a nature-themed photo contest open to all youth 14 years of age and under. The contest was opened up to adults and general public (>14 years old), once the school year was out of session.

The Allan Brooks Nature Centre is hosting a nature-themed photo contest over the next year. The contest is currently open to all youth 14 years of age and under (one does not need to be a YNC member).

ABNC encourages you all to get outside with your young naturalists as much as possible, get them taking nature-themed photos and then submit their best shot(s) to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please ensure that your photos (max. 3 photos every 2 weeks) are labelled and that the name and age of your photographer is clearly indicated.

There will be bi-weekly winners with the winning photo scheduled to appear in the Vernon Morning Star newspaper every two weeks through March 2013.

That’s right, there’ll be 26 winners so, keep entering your photos of nature. For those of you tempted to take photos for the kids’ entry please resist, the contest will be opening up to adults and general public (>14 years old), once class is out of session.

Have fun out there! We look forward to receiving your digital impressions of nature.

Cheers,
Aaron Deans
YNC Explorer Day Coordinator and Executive Director
