The Municipality of North Grenville is inviting residents to “Capture North Grenville” and submit photographs to its 2021 photo contest.
“This initiative is a fun and creative way to showcase what North Grenville has to offer, from its natural and urban landscapes to its unique shops, and the incredible people that make up the fabric of our amazing community,” said Mayor Peckford. “We want to see what ‘Your North Grenville’ looks like.”
The Capture North Grenville Photo Contest will feature five categories: Nature, Active Living, Urban landscapes, Pets, and Love NG. Prizes will be awarded to the winning photo and runner up for each category, and have been selected from a variety of local businesses.
There will also be a $25 NG Green Gift Card awarded to the “People’s Choice” winner for each category chosen through online voting on the Municipal Facebook page.
Winners of the top prize and the runner up for each category will be chosen by a panel of five judges: Mayor Peckford, Councillor John Barclay, Karen Quigley, Chair of the North Grenville Chamber of Commerce, Meagan Cumming, Chair of the Old Town Kemptville BIA, and Arthur McGregor, Vice-Chair of the Arts and Culture Advisory Committee.
“We encourage residents to get out and to take a look at North Grenville through a new lens, in order to capture our community in all its cultural and natural beauty,” added Councillor John Barclay.
The Capture North Grenville Photo Contest runs from July 15 to August 22, 2021. Chosen photos will be used as part of the Municipal communication channels.
