Bruce Trail Conservancy Magazine
Photo Contest 2024

The Bruce Trail is ready for its close-up! Are you ready to take the shot?

It has been said that life is in the details, and we want to get to the heart of life on the Bruce Trail. What aspects of Escarpment ecosystems look ordinary from a distance, but extraordinary up close? Show us the tiny towers of lichens, the delicate patterns found in feathers, or the smallest species you notice on the forest floor. Or take a closer look at the people, gear or tools of the trail to reveal a different perspective on these familiar sights.

Show us the Bruce Trail up close!

What you need to know:

To be eligible, photos must be taken from the Bruce Trail, so stay on the marked path and abide by the Trail Users’ Code. 

While we encourage your creativity, please do not disrupt the delicate ecosystems in our ribbon of wilderness to get the perfect shot. Please give all wildlife plenty of space – use your camera’s zoom or telephoto functions to get close, not your feet. Do not bait or feed wildlife.

Photos do not need to be taken recently; images from past seasons and adventures are encouraged.

Be sure to include a caption that states where on the Trail you took your picture and any other details you would like to share. 

Minor digital enhancement is permitted, but photos that have been significantly modified or appear unnatural will be disqualified.

The contest deadline is 11:59 p.m. on July 15, 2024.

The ten contest finalists will be featured in a future issue of Bruce Trail Conservancy Magazine and the BTC’s social media channels. Winners will be notified by email by the Bruce Trail Conservancy.

The Grand Prize Winner and Runners Up will be awarded prizes as follows:

Grand Prize – BTC gift card valued at $250 + a One-Year BTC Membership
Runners Up – BTC gift card valued at $100 + a One-Year BTC Membership
