CAPA Canada: My Country Competition 

Submit by:
15 March 2023

The subject is our unique Canadian identity and the beauties of our country. There are five regional themes corresponding to the Atlantic Zone (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island and Nunavut), the Pacific Zone (British Columbia and the Yukon), the Prairie Zone (Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the Northwest Territory), the Ontario Zone and the Quebec Zone. You may enter your image in any theme, either as a resident or as a visitor, provided your photo is from that zone.


CAPA offers the following ideas as examples: cultural heritage, historical events or locations, iconic landscapes or cityscapes, rough landscapes, seasonal uniqueness, nature, wildlife specific to Canada and architecture. In addition, symbols of caring, confidence, courage, encouraging or helping others, nurturing, pride, respect, self-sacrifice and trust are also suggested.

VCC members submitting images to VCC should be sure to indicate which Zone each photo illustrates.


Images can include wild, feral or domestic animals, and hand of man. All in-camera, on-camera and post-capture processing techniques are allowed, providing all elements were taken by the artist. Sky replacement is allowed, provided the sky used was also taken by the artist. Images must have a photographic origin. Colour, black and white and monochrome are permitted. No digital frames or borders are permitted.

To VCC, no later than March 15, 2023, and to CAPA, no later than April 15, 2023.

The images that were originally selected from 2017/18 were submitted for this year with the addition of 2 new images to take the place of two that were withdrawn. We placed 16th this year out of 38 clubs (see the gallery).


Unfortunately in 2018, due to a mix-up regarding the closing date of the competition, we were late with our submission to CAPA, and did not enter.
