This spring, we’re giving our visitors the opportunity to see the Vancouver Aquarium like never before. Through new shows, programming and special behind-the-scenes experiences, Vancouver Aquarium Up Close, on until April 30, provides a whole new perspective on what goes on behind the scenes to care for the 50,000 aquatic creatures that live here.
Capture your unique experiences by posting a photo of your favourite Up Close moment at the Vancouver Aquarium for your chance to win two tickets to a sleepover at the Aquarium on Saturday, May 10. Simply post your photo via our Facebook Contest App or use #VAUpClose on Twitter or Instagram and you’ll automatically be entered.
If your photo is selected, you will get to explore the Aquarium in peace and tranquility once the doors have closed for the day, before bedding down in one of our spectacular marine galleries. It will be a night full of special activities, behind-the-scenes tours, presentations and hands-on fun where you’ll learn what it takes to care for 50,000 creatures and get up close to aquatic life like never before.
Winners will be selected by a panel of Vancouver Aquarium judges and a minimum of one winner will be selected and announced weekly. Get as creative as you can (within reason, of course!) because the winning photos will be selected based on attractiveness and creativity.
Contestants may submit a maximum of one photo per day for the duration of the contest, or until they are declared a winner, and winners are only eligible to receive the prize once.
You don’t want to miss out on this fun and unique opportunity, so be sure to submit your photos by April 30. For information on the Up Close sleepover contest, visit our Facebook page.
