The Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s 2015 Capturing the Columbia Shuswap Photo Contest is underway.

The regional district is holding the contest in order to add to its current photo database for use in CSRD publications and advertising materials.

“The 2013 photo contest provided an opportunity to obtain photos CSRD can legally use at minimal cost and provided an opportunity for residents in the Columbia Shuswap to connect with their regional district in a positive way,” wrote executive assistant Emily Johnson in her report to the board.

The CSRD communications team, comprised of reps from each of the regional district’s departments, will run the contest and determine the winners in three age categories: 12 and under, 13 to 18 and 19 and over.

Photographs may be entered in two categories – people and landscape/nature, either black and white or in colour.

The contest is open to amateur photographers only and entrants must be residents of Canada living within regional district boundaries.

Participants are permitted to enter a total of five photos, each accompanied by an entry form that provides an image and signed release form, along with an accurate photo description including location or surrounding landmark.

Photos must be submitted in digital form – no print or film submissions will be accepted.

The contest closes at midnight June 30. For more information and entry forms, visit www.csrd.bc.ca, click on the News and Notices tab at the right and then Photo Gallery and Contests on the left-hand side.
