Sunrise Credit Union will begin accepting entries into the ninth annual Our Manitoba Photo Contest on Monday, March 15, 2021.
The contest has been held annually since 2013 and showcases the beauty of our province. The competition is open to all Manitobans. Each photographer can submit a maximum of three photos. Photos that meet technical requirements and showcase Manitoba’s cultural characteristics will then be shortlisted based on originality, creativity, and overall composition. The shortlisted images are subject to a public vote, with the winner unveiled on Manitoba Day, Wednesday, May 12.
The 13 winning entries will receive a canvas print of their winning photograph and have their photo featured in the 2022 Sunrise Credit Union Calendar. The Grand Prize winner will also receive a $500 term deposit.
The contest receives hundreds of entries annually, and thousands more participate through the public vote. The important dates to remember for the Our Manitoba Photo Contest are:
- March 15 – April 1 – submit photos at www.ourmanitoba.org.
