Grace the cover of B.C. guides

If you think you have what it takes to snap a winning photo, you could make the cover of the provincial fishing and hunting guides.

If you think you have what it takes to snap a winning photo relevant to hunting, fishing or trapping in British Columbia, you may stand a chance to make the cover of the provincial fishing and hunting guides published by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

The ministry has announced a photo contest to determine the cover shot of the next edition of the 2013-2015 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis and the 2014-2016 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis.

Photographs must be emailed to synopsiscoverphoto@gov.bc.ca by October 1, 2012 for the Fishing Synopsis and by October 1, 2013 for the Hunting and Trapping Synopsis in order to be considered. There is no limit to the number of submissions that can be made, and full contest rules can be found at www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/photo.html.

The contest is open to anyone and the location of the photograph must be within British Columbia and comply with all municipal, provincial, and federal regulations regarding hunting, trapping or angling.

Every two years, 450,000 copies of the Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis and 250,000 copies of the Hunting and Trapping Synopsis Regulations are distributed to outdoor recreation shops throughout B.C. This is the first time that a contest has been held to determine what photo will appear on the covers.
