There were some spectacular photos taken by Churchill Wild guests during the 2008 season! Many of the guests proved to be fabulous photographers, as evidenced by their submissions to the 2009 Churchill Wild Photo Contest.

There were four categories in our first annual contest: Best Polar Bears, Best Wildlife, Best Landscape  and Best People.

Wendy Kaveny was the winner in the Best Polar Bears category for her excellent photo of two happy polar bears high-fiving each other at sunset.  Joy Roberts won in the Best Other Wildlife category for her incredible photo of a Snowy Owl.

Best Landscape honors went to Judi Pennock for her gorgeous sunset over the Hudson Bay rocks at low tide and Best People photo honors went to Gary Potts for his picture of 11 photographers trekking out on to the tundra in the snow to photograph the mighty polar bears and more.

Churchill Wild offers the only arctic adventure vacations in Canada that allow you to actually walk with the polar bears and get up close and personal. And that makes for some great photographs!

A big thank you to all of our wonderful guests who participated in the 2009 photo contest! We’ll be running¬† another photo contest this year and would love to have more of your awesome photos!
