North Bay, ON – April 7, 2021 – The North Bay Municipal Heritage Committee is pleased to announce the 2021 Youth Engagement Photography Contest for youth aged 18 and under.
The goal of the Photography Contest is to encourage local youth to demonstrate to the MHC what components of North Bay’s culture and heritage are significant and meaningful to them. Entrants will also be challenged to explain the significance of their photo to themselves and the community by way of a short paragraph.
The following prizes are to be awarded to winners:
The photograph itself may be contemporary, or taken in the recent past, but must have been taken by the entrant to the competition.
There are no fixed categories for the competition. However, entrants will be asked to consider how the photograph relates to one of three broadly defined areas: Built, Natural, or Human Heritage of North Bay. Participants may choose to focus on a range of heritage features within these broadly defined categories.
