Nikon leads second Toronto contest

snapThe City of Toronto’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation division is holding another Snap & Share photo contest, presented by Nikon Canada, to highlight the wonders of winter in Toronto’s parks, ravines and recreation spaces.

From now until February 29, the public is invited to snap and share photos in six categories for a chance to win great prizes.

Contest categories: Colour in Winter, Family Fun, Walking in a Winter Wonderland, the Great Indoors, Winter Wildlife, and Toronto Walking Tour. The contest will also include a People’s Choice component.

The Toronto Walking Tour category will be exclusive to participants of a photo walk in High Park led by Nikon Canada and photographer Kristian Bogner, who’s a Nikon Ambassador. Unfortunately, this Feb. 6 event is already fully registered. Photos and tips from the photo walk will be shared on Nikon Canada’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

The expert panel of judges for the contest includes Bogner; Ed Robertson, lead singer of Barenaked Ladies and an avid photographer; and Michelle Valberg, a wildlife and adventure photographer and Nikon Ambassador.

Entries will be evaluated based on content, composition, impact and technical criteria. Judges will review short-listed photos and winners will be notified in April.

Prizes include a Nikon D3300 DSLR with a two-lens kit and a camera bag, three Nikon Coolpix AW130 cameras, two Nikon Coolpix S3700 cameras and a Photographic Rockstar Workshop with contest judge Bogner.

Winning images will be exhibited at Toronto’s City Hall and other civic centres and featured on the City’s website and in City communication materials.

As noted, this is the second Snap & Share photo contest. The first took place last summer/fall.
