By the Skeena, for the Skeena: Submit to the annual film and photo festival!

Submit photos and films of the Skeena before Sept. 1 for a chance to win cash prizes

The SkeenaWild Conservation Trust is dedicated to making the Skeena River and nearby coastal communities a global model of sustainability where large human and salmon populations coexist. Since 2007, they’ve worked with governments, First Nations, communities and individuals to sustain wild salmon populations.

Each year, their cornerstone community outreach event is the SkeenaWild Film & Photo Festival, now celebrating its 11th edition! Photos and films taken in Northern British Columbia are reviewed by a panel of independent judges, and then the finalists hit the road for the festival every fall, touring communities from Haida Gwaii to Prince George.

Submit your photos and films!
