CWF is excited to partner with four accomplished Canadian photographers as part of the Reflections of Nature photo contest. Callum Snape, Dave Bouskill, David Guenther, and Mike Seehagel will be guest judges in this year’s competition.
Reflections of Nature celebrates Canada’s natural beauty and the wildlife that call our country home. We receive thousands of photos every year from professional and amateur photographers of all ages. This is the first time that we’ve partnered with professional photographers to help choose the winners.
