Celebrating and featuring North West talent

The festival features the photographic talent in the British Columbia northwest. We live among some of the most spectacular scenery in the world that features wildlife from humpback whales and orcas, grizzly and black bears to tiny songbirds. The region is more and more in the news, so photojournalism is a vital field to explain the north-west of Canada to the world.
