Town of Qualicum Beach invites shutterbugs to enter ‘Our Town’ photo contest

Top photos to win a prize and be displayed at TOSH

The Town of Qualicum Beach is inviting photographers of all ages and abilities to enter the ‘Our Town’ photo contest.

Residents and visitors can submit their best shots throughout the year for a chance to win a prize.

The contest hopes to showcase the best of Qualicum Beach, with an opportunity to put a spotlight on the people, activities, and places that make it uniquely ‘Our Town’.

There are five categories to enter:

My Community: Show what unique elements you love about the town. It could be the community relaxing, at work, or at play.

READ MORE: Your photos: PQB News readers offer a sampling of their impressive photography skills

Hidden Gems: Is there a location you have discovered that you just have to share? Whether it be an active trail, an inspiring view, or a seat under a soothing tree. Show us your hidden gem.

Going Green: How are you going green? It could be riding your bike or taking the bus; recycling or composting; conserving water; or using solar panels. Show us how you make a difference in our town.

Youth: For those under 19 years of age, show us through your eyes what you love and enjoy about the town.

Seasons: We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, with four distinctly beautiful seasons. Show us the beauty you see in the changing seasons that the town enjoys.

The top photo in each category will win a gift card to a local business, a framed copy of their image, and have their work exhibited at The Old School House Arts Centre in January 2022.

The contest closes Nov. 30 and winners will be announced in December.
