CAPA Digital Pacific Zone Open

Submit by:
1 Sept 2022 

This is an open theme “highlighting life in British Columbia and in the Yukon.” As an open theme – animals, birds, insects, landscape, nature, people and wildlife are permitted as well as creative composite images. “Life in B.C. and the Yukon” is very broad. The restrictions that generally come with “landscape”, “wildlife”, and other terms do not apply. At the same time, “life in B.C.” suggests a realistic approach, rather than fantasy. Open themes are often hard to apply: look to the previous winning photos to get an idea of what was successful.

Open Editing

All different in-camera, on-camera and post-processing techniques can be used.  All elements contained in the submitted images must have been taken by the submitting photographer. Elements contained in an image can be removed.  No digital frames or mats are permitted.

Colour, black & white, monochrome and infrared images are permitted.


VCC members may enter two images as Club images. The Club may enter only 6 images from 6 different photographers.

The DEADLINE for submission of images to VCC in the Club category is September 1, 2022, midnight PDT.

Individual members of CAPA may enter this contest. Follow the link to the CAPA contest page.
