A photo contest has, once again, revealed the diverse beauty of the vast Columbia Shuswap Regional District – and the talent of some of its residents.
Co-ordinated by the regional district’s communications team, the contest drew 140 submissions from 40 participants.
Winners were declared in three age categories: 12 and under, 13 to 18 years of age and 19 and over. The contest was open to amateur photographers residing in Canada.
Members of the communications team made their first, second and third choices in each category and the ones with the most points won.
Top overall winner was Reneigh Gerow, for a photo of an iconic Canadian scene – someone playing hockey on an outdoor rink. Gerow will be awarded a GoPro at the regional district’s open house on Thursday, Dec. 3. Other winners will also receive their prizes and the photo entries will be revealed.
Members of the public are invited to take a tour of the new administration building, learn about the services CSRD provides and get to know staff, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at 555 Harbourfront Dr. NE.
Cake, coffee and light refreshments will be served. Non-perishable food items will be accepted for the food bank.
