With the emerging importance of video, the Canadian Armed Forces Photography Contest has been officially renamed as the CAF Imagery Contest. 

The annual CAF Imagery Contest celebrates the talented photographers and videographers that capture life in CAF communities from coast to coast. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or an amateur photographer or videographer lover, this is the contest for you.

Since 1968, the Imagery Contest has celebrated the many facets of military life through recognizing excellence in the art of photography. Honouring both the novice and advanced, photographers compete for top place finishes in eight categories, and distinguished titles such as Photographer of the Year. We are now excited to include the addition of video submissions.

Since 1992, the contest has been organized by CAF Imaging Systems Program Management and Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services.

The contest encourages the creation of imagery which depicts the many aspects of life in the military, and recognizes those members of the military community who have attained a level of excellence in the art of photography and videography.
