The Lions Gate Nature Competition is on again this year and there are a number of changes.  There are new categories, the rules have been clarified inline with CAPA and there is a image size limit of 1.8 mb.

  •  02 – Nature – subjects such as animals, birds, insects, reptiles and marine subjects – under the control and feeding of humans if not obvious – such as zoos, game farms, animal preserves, aquarium, etc…
  •  03 – Landscape – subjects such as weather phenomena, geological formations, landscapes, seascapes and natural phenomena, planets, stars and astronomical events – no hand of man.
  •  04 – Wildlife – ONLY living and untamed mammals, birds, insects, reptiles and marine subjects – no hand of man.

Images have to be uploaded by October 20th followed by a week of voting.  You can vote eight images including your own image.  The top eight images will be forwarded to the Lions Gate club by November 1st.

Look through your best shots, be certain there is no ‘hand of man’ in the image, ensure it is less than 1.8mb and submit it.  Images have a maximum width of 1400 pixels and maximum height of 1050 pixels. 

This is a unique opportunity for the photography produced by your members to be judged by some of the best nature photographers in Canada.
