Capturing the Coast

The Capturing the Coast photo contest celebrates the natural world, the people, and the unknowns of Vancouver Island’s wild west coast. Photographs entered into the contest should inspire people to explore, adventure, and respect the region, and highlight the importance of stewardship and conservation.

Submissions open Jan 25 - Feb 12.

The main event is on Feb. 25, 2017 at Shelter Restaurant in Tofino, BC.

At the main event, you can show your support by voting for your favourite slideshow and photo submissions and by entering our raffle to win great prize packs from local Vancouver Island businesses! Proceeds from raffle ticket sales directly support the Raincoast Field School for local youth.
