2017 Photography Contests

People's Choice Photo Contests
2017 will begin with People's Choice contests in January, February, & March. Another People's Choice Contest will take place at the Annual Flower Show and Tea on August 19, with three categories. And as always, we'll have a special competition at the November AGM, to select the photo used for the 2018 EYGC Yearbook cover. Entries are judged by a vote of those who are present at the meetings. You're invited to provide "photographic interpretation" for each category.

  • January 19 - Yellow
  • February 16 - Winter Fun
  • March 16 - Flags
  • August 19 (Annual Flower Show):
    1. O Canada
    2. Gorgeous Blossoms
    3. Just Maples
  • November 16 - Yearbook Cover
