OTTAWA - Ladies and gentlemen, get your cameras ready for the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Imagery Contest! The 2017 contest is open for submissions until 1 September, and we want you to send us your best shots.

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or an amateur photography lover, this is the contest for you. The Photography portion of the contest accepts images in eight diverse categories, and is open to all members of the Defence Team and their families.

In addition to the photography contest, we’re excited to announce that this year’s contest will also have two video categories as well, Actuality and Social Media. Send us your real world 30 second to two minute video footage for Actuality submissions, and your 30 second to one minute inspirational message videos for Social Media entries.

Photographers and Videographers will be eligible to win $10,000 in prizes from our sponsors. Even if you don’t win the grand prize, participating in the contest automatically enters you in a draw for two tickets to anywhere* Westjet flies!

The CAF Imagery Contest will also be again welcoming nominations for the Military Photographer Achievement Award, a prize introduced in 2015 to recognize the contributions that CAF Imagery Technicians have made to the CAF community.

For five decades, the Imagery Contest has been celebrating the talented photographers who capture life in CAF communities from coast to coast. As you take photos this summer, keep the Imagery Contest in mind. Family gatherings, sports tournaments, scenic vacations, work events...the possibilities are endless!
