Our 2012 contest winners submitted some fabulous photos, which you can view at the end of this post, and we’re sure your photos will be just as spectacular!

If you were a Group Leader please forward this page to your group members so they may enter the contest.

The first place winner will receive a $1,500 CAD Gift Certificate to be applied to any Churchill Wild Adventure. The second place winner will receive beautiful coffee table photo book by Churchill Wild photographer Dennis Fast.

The Churchill Wild 2010 Photo Contest has officially come to a close. Guests from all of our adventures submitted their favorite photos and it was great to see all those magical moments again!

We saw polar bears wandering the icy coast line, lazily lounging on rocks and some even sparring.  Guests got up close and personal with polar bears and some enjoyed an awesome display of northern lights.

No matter what the photo, each submission was good for one reason or another, which made this an extremely tough job for our judge.  We do like to keep him on his toes!  Dennis Fast was in charge of judging the contest this year and he has done a great job. It was very tough naming just one first prize winner for each category.

Please watch for all submissions to be posted on the Churchill Wild Web site next week. Without further adieu we announce the winners of this year’s photo contest.
