Got a good shot of the Mighty Fraser?

Fraser River Discovery Centre is calling on photographers to take part it the annual *Click* photos of the Fraser exhibit.

If you're an amateur photographer or a photography buff who's captured an image of the Mighty Fraser that tells a story, the Fraser River Discovery Centre wants to hear from you.

The centre is looking for photographs for the annual *Click* photos of the Fraser exhibit that will be unveiled during RiverFest: Inspired by the Fraser in September.

"I am really excited about the changes we've made to *Click* for 2013," said Kathleen Bertrand, exhibit coordinator at Discovery Centre. "I will be interested to see how this year's theme, Industry on the River, is interpreted by photographers. I am also hoping to get some entries from people who work out on the river. Their perspective in the exhibit will showcase a view of the river not often seen by the majority of our visitors."

The photography exhibit aims to bring together a collection of images from the Rocky Mountains to the Salish Sea, the 1,375 kilometre stretch of the Fraser River that's home to nearly three million people.

This year's show will be juried, with first, second and third place honours awarded.

Submissions are being accepted until Aug. 15. For more information and guidelines, visit
