Canadian Geographic rewards the photos of the year 2022


Canadian Geographic has chosen Alan Poelman of Atikokan, Ontario as its 2022 Photographer of the Year. Poelman captured a photo of a lynx looking directly at his camera.

“I was near a lake that I used to go to as a kid and saw him jump across the road,” Poelman said of the photo in a Friday press release. “I have never been more excited by a photo than by meeting the lynx.”

Poelman received the grand prize of $5,000 for his photo, which caught the judges’ attention for its depth, quality and scope. The photo was chosen from over 6,400 entries.

“Good photography comes down to a combination of location, timing and skill,” Canadian Geographic editor Alexandra Pope said in the press release. “Each of the winning images tells a compelling story and is a testament to the talent and passion of our photographic community.”

Photos were judged by the editorial and design team at Canadian Geographic, as well as photographer Scott Forsyth, photographer Mark Raycroft and Kim MacDonald of the Weather Network. The list of entries has been narrowed down to 12 photos belonging to one of four categories.

Jeremy Klager won the Epic Landscapes category for his photo of Prince Edward Island’s famous Teacup Rock, which was destroyed weeks later by Hurricane Fiona.

Jean-Simon Bégin, who was named 2021 Photographer of the Year, won the Wildlife in Action category for his photo of a red fox. The fox can be seen crossing the east coast of Newfoundland after a storm.

The City Life category was won by David Paul, who took a photo of a Toronto construction worker walking through a winter storm. The portrait showcases the worker’s “courage and determination”, the press release read.

Jeff Wizniak chased a shot from a hitting tornado near Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan in July 2022 that won the Weather, Seasons and Sky categories.
