‘Made in Kingston’ Photography Contest Ends This Month

Published on: 2019/12/18 - in News

Interested shutterbugs still have time to enter the 2019 Ian Walsh Photography Contest – whether a Kingston resident or a visitor and both professional photographers and hobbyists alike.

This year’s theme is  ‘Made in Kingston’ and seeks photos that capture Kingston’s vibrant maker community.

Organizers “want to see it all,” according to the contest page. “Farmer’s fields growing local produce, our energetic live music scene, unique creations from our talented maker community, plated appetizers and entrees, works of art from our artists and creators — if it’s made in Kingston, we want to see!”

Sit on a patio, watch the sailboats on the lake, take in a live performance, or simply lose yourself in the street scene around you. The heritage of Kingston and its limestone beginnings have seeped into every aspect of this place, where a leisurely pace is encouraged and the good things in life can be savoured.

Photographers can enter a maximum of five (5) photos in the contest and cash prizes include $2,500 for first place, $1,500 for second place and $1000 for third. A panel of judges – professional photographers and affiliates – appointed by the sponsor will judge all submissions on the basis or originality, creativity, technical proficiency, uniqueness, appropriateness and relevance to the contest theme.

Digital-only photo submissions are being accepted up to December 31, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. EDT at Visit Kingston’s Ian Walsh Photography Contest page.

The contest is sponsored by Kingston Life Magazine, Kingston Accommodation Partners, Alphabet®, Frameworks and Camera Kingston.
