Delta residents and city staff are invited to participate in the City of Delta’s 14th annual Earth Day Photo Contest.
In honour of nature providing a source of motivation and stimulation to persevere through hard times, the theme of this year’s contest is “Inspiration.”
From now through March 31, residents ages five and up can take a photo in Delta and submit it — along with their name, a title and short description explaining how the photo inspired them — at letstalk.delta.ca/earthdaycontest.
One Grand Prize winner will be selected along with three winners in four categories: Adult (ages 18+), Teen (12-17 years old), Youth (5-11 years old) and City of Delta staff (entries in this category are not eligible for the grand prize). As well, residents will be able to vote online for a “fan favourite” from among all entries April 1-14.
Grand Prize, age category and Fan Favourite winners will each receive a gift certificate and have their photos displayed online.
Winners of the City of Delta’s 14th annual Earth Day Photo Contest will be announced on Monday, April 25.
