Over the past few weeks, we have received tremendous support in our efforts to speak out against the rushed, irresponsible Pebble Mine permitting process. As a thank you to all of those who have supported us by spreading the word, attending webinars, and submitting comments to your elected officials, we have decided to put together a photo giveaway.
Participants are eligible to win one of the prizes below:
Little Bear Wildlife Prize: Donated by Brooke Bartleson. Signed 24x36" metal print of a red fox. This print is a limited edition - it was the first Little Bear Wildlife photo ever printed for gallery use. There is minor wear on the edges of the print, but they do not affect the overall presentation of the image.
Just A Little Light Photography Prize: Donated by Dave Fleishman. 16x24" X-Poser mounted photo of gorgeous coastal brown bear on a waterfall and soft-cover photo book of bears titled "Ursus Actos".
Sandford Photography Prize: Donated by Dave Sandford. Two signed and matted 8x12" prints. "Face of the Arctic" featuring a polar bear and "Midnight Sun" featuring two wolves.
Max Block Photography Prize: Donated by Max Block. 16x12" canvas print featuring a photo of a brown bear catching a sockeye salmon at the iconic Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park.
Dawn Wilson Photography Prize: Donated by Dawn Wilson. Signed 12x8" original print of brown bear swimming, reflected in pristine blue water.
Drew Hamilton Prize: Donated by Drew H Hamilton. Stunning photo canvas of a brown bear catching a Bristol Bay sockeye salmon.
Shawn Eggleston Prize: Donated by Shawn Eggleston. Signed limited edition 24x36" canvas print of "Downward Wolf", featuring a gorgeous stretching wolf photographed near the proposed Pebble Mine location.
Lianna Nixon Photography Prize: Donated by Lianna Nixon. Stunning 20x30" print of a wild wolf on the move.
Ferre Dollar Prize: Donated by Ferre Dollar. Breathtaking landscape print featuring a brown bear lazily bathing in a river.
Plus the additional opportunity to win a prize if you share the giveaway post. Sharing the post automatically enters you into the drawing for the McNeil River Prize: Donated by Erin Ranney. 11x14 metal print featuring a brown bear on the move beneath a stunning mountain backdrop.
Thank you for your support in our fight to defend Bristol Bay, and good luck!
