The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is inviting hobby photographers to contribute submissions for a photo contest.
Pictures will be accepted until July 31 when town staff will choose the top photos in each category and allow the public to vote for the winners.
“It’s a nice way to acknowledge the photographs that we know people are taking of our town,” said spokesperson Lauren Kruitbosch.
“And it’s great for us on our end as well to just get some additional photos for us to use for publication in our online use as well and it’s nice to have local or visiting photographers share their work.”
New and old photos, from any season that highlight NOTL are welcome in five categories: Amenities and Places; Arts, Culture and Events; Innovation and Economy; Nature and Parks; and Recreation and Sports.
Residents and visitors can enter up to 10 photos in the contest. Each entry must include a brief caption stating when and where the photo was taken in town.
Each of the five categories will have a winner who will see their photo professionally framed and displayed in town. The location is to be determined at a later date.
Photos can be submitted through www.jointheconversationnotl.org/photo-contest.
By contributing to the contest, the photographer is giving the Town of NOTL permission to use those photos for online and print publications.
