For the second year in a row, we are excited to invite our talented Ottawa Valley community to submit their best photos to help us tell the story of the Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre in our 2024 calendar.

With the success of our first Calendar Contest in 2023, we wanted to celebrate another year of incredible photos, stories and impact in collaboration with all of you.

Our volunteer judges, Nina Stavlund and Tony Beck are also back from Always an Adventure, and will be looking for a variety of unique captures that align with the following themes:

  • Season Highlights (spring, summer, fall, winter)

  • Aquatic Life

  • Urban Birds

  • Majestic Wonders

  • Small but Mighty

Our judges will be giving careful consideration to each and every photo with a critical eye to species, behaviour, clarity, camera control, composition, aesthetic appeal and overall visual impact.

If your photo is selected, you could win one of the incredible prizes from our generous partners at Wild Birds Unlimited and Always an Adventure. All ages are welcome to participate and there will be two categories just like last year:

  • Amateur (18 and over)

  • Youth (under 18)

Please respect the Birding Code of Ethics when birding and taking photographs: Birds Canada Code of Birding Ethics
