What’s In My Backyard Photo Contest

The ‘What’s in My Backyard?’ (WIMBY) Photo Contest is open to everyone across BC throughout the month of May!

Throughout the month of May, post as many photos as you can of invasive species found in your backyard – which can be your school yard, local park, back yard or even in the back country. Each photo you submit counts toward an entry in the contest! The more photos, the better your chance of winning!

Enter as an individual, or join forces as a team. This is a great option for families, school groups and youth groups. Be sure to include your team name in the post!

How to enter

  • Post photos from May 1 to May 31 on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #WIMBY2022 or by uploading your photo to the event contest platform below.
  • Photos should be posted by one social media account  for teams and include the name of your team
  • Name the invasive species in your post

You could win a $500 gift card toward your favourite local outdoors or recreational store! Winner’s choice! Second place prize is $300 and third place prize is $200 toward a local purchase! The more photos you enter, the better your chance to win!
