St. Joseph Island Hunters & Anglers Photo Contest

Early in December each year, the St. Joseph Hunters and Anglers Association hosts a Community Christmas Potluck Dinner at the Conservation Centre. (Please see this year’s calendar for the date). All neighbours and friends of the Club are invited to join in a celebration of the upcoming holiday season. A featured event of the dinner is the Photo contest. Members are eligible to submit their photos to the contest in any or all of the following categories:

The first SJIHAA Photo Contest was a success with some excellent submissions. The contest is organized by Terry Wills.

Photography Categories:

  • Wildlife (animals, birds, fish, insects, etc.)
  • Hunting or Fishing
  • Scenery
  • Trail Camera Photo
  • Video (wildlife, fishing, or hunting)

Contest Rules:

  • Each participant must be a SJIHAA Member
  • Each member can enter two photos per category
  • Photos are to be submitted in 8″ x 10″ format
