The District of Sechelt has launched a photo contest on its Facebook page. The contest is open to all Sunshine Coast citizens and tourists with the exception of District staff and council.
Contestants are asked to post their favourite photo of Sechelt on the District of Sechelt Facebook page before March 29. A panel of judges will select the top three and those three will be posted to the District Facebook page on April 6 for voting on by the public. The photo with the most likes will win the grand prize.
All photos submitted will be considered for the 2019 street banners in downtown Sechelt, and the grand prize winner will receive a Ricoh W6-30W underwater camera.
The criteria on which the photos will be judged are simply a quality photo that represents life in Sechelt. The photo also cannot have been used for commercial purposes in the past.
“This contest is a win-win for the District,” said Julie Rogers, Sechelt communications manager. “We will receive some awesome photos of our community that we can use to promote our community and we increase engagement on our Facebook page. We love the idea of our citizens posting questions on our page so we can provide them with answers publicly.”
The complete list of contest rules are posted to the District website and Facebook page.
