AWA 2024 Photo Contest Winners!

Photo contest collageWe had over 70 incredible photo submissions in the photo contest, all of which will be filed away and likely used to help us speak out for Wild Alberta. We are so grateful for all the interest we received in this contest.

Staff Pick Winner:

Staff were overwhelmed by the incredible assortment of photos, and we were delighted by the variety. Though it was difficult to choose, the most votes went to Kyle Matthew’s Swift Fox photograph.

Here’s what Kyle said about the image:

“An endangered swift fox sticks her tongue out, as if to taunt me, knowing very well she can swiftly escape if need be!”

Thanks for your submission, Kyle!

Swift Fox by Kyle Matthew. Photo contest winner in Alberta Wilderness Association’s Staff Pick category.

People’s Choice Winner:

It was a tight race with over 700 votes.

Bryce Horn’s Coyote in the Snow photograph was crowned the winner of this category.

Bryce said he spotted the coyote as it sauntered through some fresh snowfall in central Alberta on January 21, 2024. He said he had remained undetected for several minutes as he watched it while laying behind a snow bank, the sounds of his trusty DSLR must’ve alerted it of his location.

Bryce said the softer light brought upon by overcast conditions during the winter, on top of a snow covered landscape, made for a lovely time to try for this high key look.

Thanks for the submission!

With rare exception cattle ranchers have been the best of guardians of the land entrusted to them. May we continue to be conscientious caretakers of this precious resource and hand it on to another generation unspoiled.
