Life’s a Beach Contest – 2015 Winners

Last summer, we asked Canadians to send us their best shots of their favourite beaches across the country—and they did! We received hundreds of photos from photographers from coast-to-coast that show what makes Canadian beaches so great: the water, sand, wildlife, and people enjoying nature.

Take a look at the winning images below. Thanks to everyone who entered.

2nd placeLandon Sveinson (Victoria, BC). Prize: $500 worth of camera gear
