SPCA holding photo contest

It’s time to snap the purrfect picture.

The BC SPCA is hosting its annual Wildlife-In-Focus Contest until Sept. 30.

In its seventh year, the contest calls for photos snapped of B.C. wildlife — whether close to home or out in the wilderness.

Photographers of all experience levels who are ages 14 and older are asked to submit digital images for the chance to win awards in two categories: Wild Settings and Backyard Habitats.

The contest supports the BC SPCA’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre. For more information, email contest@wildarc.com.
