​​​CP is looking for 24 contemporary photos to be added to CP's famous photography collection, alongside the most iconic railway images ever captured.

If your photo is selected as one of the 24 winners, you will:

  • ​Win $150
  • Have your photo featured on CP's social media with your photographer credit
  • Have your photo added to CP's historical photo collection
  • Receive a copy of CP's limited edition 2017 archival calendar

Next year, owing to Canada's 150th birthday and CP's participation in the celebration, we will be publishing an all-archival image calendar. This year's winning photos will be deferred for selection for the 2018 calendar.​

How to enter:

Photo criteria:

  • Photos must be current and include a CP train.
  • Photos should showcase the beauty of the CP fleet and the landscape of our network.
  • Photographers must not trespass on railway property to take photos. This is a serious safety concern. Those found trespassing may be prosecuted.
  • Photos that defame CP, showcase graffiti, or are obscene or offensive in nature will not be considered.
