Sundridge is offering cash and gift cards as prizes in its first-ever holiday photo contest.
Staff generated a report for council several weeks ago spelling out details of the contest and council endorsed it. The fine-tuning has been finalized and the contest is now underway.
“It’s to keep community spirit going,” explains Christine Hickey, the municipality’s deputy clerk.
With Christmas just around the corner, the rules of the contest are simple: Photographs must reflect the holiday season and they must be of Sundridge.
You don’t have to be a Sundridge resident to enter. The only people not eligible to enter are Sundridge municipal staff and their immediate families, as well as anyone under 18 years of age.
Images can be submitted to the municipality either in .jpg or .png format, and contestants need to sign a waiver declaring the photograph or photographs were taken in Sundridge and that the municipality can use the images as it wishes.
