British Columbia Lodges Photo Contest

The Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia Association (BLBCA) recently announced  its first ever photo contest. The show and tell style contest has three categories: skiing, hiking and wildlife/nature.

“This photo contest is for those who have a reputation for babbling on about the deep powder days, meandering summer hikes and chance wildlife encounters they’ve experienced in British Columbia’s world-renowned backcountry.” said Brad Harrison, BLBCA’s Executive Director.

The Grand Prize includes backcountry education with a vehicle for adrenaline:
CAA approved Avalanche Skills Training course for the winner and three lucky friends, plus a pair of G3 El Hombre skis, G3 skins and more.

Winning submissions will be judged on how much the image and accompanying tale exemplify someone’s best day in the BC backcountry, the submission’s visual energy and how much it aligns with BC’s adventurous spirit. Canada’s highly respected mountain image experts Pat Morrow and Roger Laurilla will act as final category judges.

The contest is open until February 15th, 2010. To submit an entry, learn more about the contest or check out the full category prize packages, www.bcbackcountry.ca or check the press release here
