The North Bay Municipal Heritage Committee (MHC) is inviting young photography enthusiasts to enter their photos in the 2019 Youth Engagement Photography Contest.
The purpose of the contest, which is open to youth aged 18 and under, is to demonstrate to the MHC what aspects of North Bay’s culture and heritage are important to them. Entrants will also be challenged to explain the significance of their photo to themselves and the community by way of a short paragraph.
The following prizes are to be awarded to winners:
1st Prize - $100 DIA GIFT CARD
2nd Prize - $50 DIA GIFT CARD
3rd Prize - $25 DIA GIFT CARD
The photograph itself may be contemporary, or taken in the recent past, but must have been taken by the entrant to the competition.
There are no fixed categories for the competition. However, entrants will be asked to consider how the photograph relates to one of three (3) broadly defined areas: Built, Natural, or Human Heritage of North Bay. Participants may choose to focus on a range of heritage features within these broadly defined categories.
- All entries must be submitted to the City of North Bay by 4:00pm on Friday April 19, 2019. Entries received after this date/time will not be considered.
- The competition winner will be announced later at the Heritage Fair taking place at Nipissing University.
- Participants are required to submit the photograph, together with a completed Photographic Release Form and potentially a Model Release Form or Art Release Form (depending on the nature of the submission).
Entries can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to:
