A picture, as they say, is worth 1,000 words. With hectares of forests, lakes, rivers, streams, provincially significant wetlands, rugged wilderness trails and urban pathways in the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority region, our watersheds have a lot to say. We live, work, and play in a spectacular region of Ontario, filled with natural wonders and watersheds!
Join NBMCA in celebrating our 50th anniversary by sharing your photographs taken within Nipissing District or Parry Sound District in our Watershed Wonders 50th Anniversary Photo Contest 2022. Images selected for prizes and exhibition will successfully educate, motivate, or passionately move audiences to celebrate our watershed for appreciation, recreation, preservation, and sustainability. This contest welcomes hobbyist and professionals.
The contest will be open from August 2nd to November 1st, 2022.

People and Nature
Your photograph tells a story about people exploring nature whether they are hiking, mountain biking, treasure hunting, or simply appreciating and enjoying outdoor spaces like our conservation areas! These photos can be scenic, candid or even action shots.
Capture the presence of nature while creating a sense of place, with or without people. Whether the focus is on large spaces, sunsets, ripples on a lake, a rare plant or a landscape view from a bird or ant’s perspective, your photograph speaks for nature itself.
Take the time and explore the magic, mystery, and beauty of what is above, below and in between water. Did you know we have freshwater jellyfish in one of our area lakes? Have you watched an osprey or eagle dive for a fish? Show us through photography your care, concern and appreciation for our area wetlands, creeks, rivers, and lakes.
From chipmunks to moose, hummingbirds to eagles, sunfish to musky, our watersheds are alive with all kinds of wildlife! Photograph them in our conservation areas, in the bush or in your very own backyard.
Things and ways that people build, manufacture, and create that respect, protects, or enhances the environment. These structures can be with or without people.
