The Municipality of North Grenville is inviting residents to submit photographs to its 2023 North Grenville in Bloom photo contest.

“Now that the weather has cleared and we can all enjoy outside time again, we encourage you to showcase North Grenville’s natural and urban landscapes that help make up the fabric of our amazing community,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford.

The North Grenville in Bloom Photo Contest is open to a variety of categories:

      • Gardens
      • Landscapes
      • Environmental Action
      • Local Heritage Sites
      • Floral Displays, and
      • Urban Forestry and Trails

Prizes will be awarded to the winning photos and runners-up for each category.

First-place prizes will amount to $50, and runners-up will be awarded $25 worth of prizes.

There will also be a $50 prize awarded to the “People’s Choice” winner chosen through online voting on the North Grenville Communities in Bloom Facebook page.

“We encourage residents to get out and to take a look at North Grenville’s gardens and landscapes through a new lens, to capture our community in all its natural beauty,” added Councillor Debbie Wilson. “We have many talented and passionate gardeners in North Grenville, and look forward to seeing just how creative our community can be.”

The North Grenville in Bloom Photo Contest runs until July 17, 2023.

Chosen photos will be shared on municipal communication channels and in the Communities in Bloom profile book.

About Communities in Bloom

Earlier this year, the Municipality of North Grenville announced its participation in Communities in Bloom Ontario.

Communities in Bloom aims to promote civic pride, environmental responsibility, and beautification through community involvement and the use of green spaces.

Residents, businesses, and community groups are invited to take part by submitting photos to the North Grenville website for the creation of our profile book, and taking part in touring the beautiful landscapes and green space within the community to help support the initiative.

There is also an opportunity to register local gardens and landscapes in the Communities in Bloom judges’ tour, to be held in August.
