Whether it's mountains, water, snow, or greenery that gets your heart going, B.C. has something for every kind of outdoors person.

To celebrate how great B.C.'s (and Alberta's) wilderness is, Telus launched a photo contest called #Playwiththebest. Basically, residents from Canada's two westernmost provinces take a photo of themselves doing some kind of outdoorsy activity and include the hasthag #playwiththebest, according to competition details.

Winners will be filmed by a professional camera crew doing that outdoor sport they love. The videos are then shared on social media, the contest website, and Optik TV On Demand, Vancouver Is Awesome reported.

So far, three videos have been uploaded on the site.

The most recent one shows BASE jumper Ian McIntosh taking flight—seriously—in Invermere. His video shoot was valued at $25,000, according to VancityBuzz.

Another video shows Whistler professional mountain biker Ian Morrison tearing up Whistler Mountain Bike Park as his professional photographer father takes photos.

In the earliest video, Dale Douglas goes fly fishing in B.C.'s remote interior.
