The Environmental Services Association of Alberta (ESAA) invites its members to enter its 2016 ESAA Photo Contest! You must read the following rules, terms and conditions prior to entering.


Entries will be judged on technical skill and creativity. Entries should include:

  1. One photo entry per member organization
  2. Photographer’s name and member organization
  3. Brief description of the photo (what it portrays, intent)
  4. No visible logos in the photo
  5. No identifiable people in the photo

Note: By submitting the photo, the submitter of the photo warrants that he or she is the holder of any and all intellectual property and related rights associated with the photo and, in exchange for participation in this contest, allows ESAA the right to use the submitted photo for any purpose, including future marketing materials.

The ESAA Photo Contest is open to member organizations ONLY. Each member organization is allowed to submit ONE photo taken by an employee of the organization. Organizations with multiple entries will be disqualified.


The subject for this year’s photo contest is “Nature in Action. The natural world is a powerful place. Applicants are encouraged to submit photos that highlight this strength with a focus on weather, water, plant life and wildlife.

Entries will be disqualified that include distinguishable people, locations, logos or images that have been heavily manipulated. It is acceptable to adjust images to achieve color balance that reflects the scene as you observed it. Cropping is also acceptable. ESAA has the right to disqualify any image which it feels has been overly altered.

Photo captions must accompany all submissions, and should include the subject of the image, the location the image was taken, and the name of the photographer(s) and the photographer(s) affiliation with the member organization.

HOW TO ENTER – Submission Deadline August 15th, 2016

All images must be submitted through our photo submission website:
