"Water in Focus" Photo Contest & Photo Exhibition

Come celebrate our waters through the lens of a camera!

Click here for all of the details.

The North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper is launching our first "Water in Focus" Photo Contest and Event Exhibition.  The photo contest and exhibition are focused on four "water-themed" photo categories that capture everyone's relationship with water.  Every amateur photographer in Canada either has a photo or can take a photo that fits one of our categories.

The photo contest entry and payment is all online, secure, and confidential.  We want as many people as possible to be involved with celebrating our waters through photography and the dialogue one photo can create about our water. The photo contest starts today and will be open until March 31/2012. Read more »
