The Downtown Oshawa News blog is launching another photo contest and we want to see your best shot. This competition is open to all amateur, student or professional photographers. We are looking for images of the downtown area of Oshawa.
DON is a hyperlocal blog that covers the news that matters to those who live, work, study or have fun in downtown Oshawa.
Photographers of all ages can submit up to six colour or black and white photos. The theme for this year’s contest is environment. Approach the theme in anyway that makes sense to you. But if you’re looking for inspiration, consider the following possible interpretations of the concept environment:
– Physical surroundings and conditions
– Social and cultural forces that shape the life of a person
– A structure designed to be experienced from inside
– Mother nature (water, trees, air, etc)
Upload your photo(s) to the Downtown Oshawa News group on Flickr by April 15 2012, 12 midnight. Images will only be considered if they have been uploaded to the group between March 16 and April 15. Make sure to include a description of the image in the caption.
The winning entry will be announced at the end of April and the winning photographer will be awarded a $50 gift certificate to Henry’s Oshawa and be featured on the DON blog.
Henry’s Oshawa has recently relocated to it’s new downtown location at 245 King St. West (Teddy’s Park Plaza).
