About the #PortColborneProud Photo Contest

Spearheaded by the Economic Development Department, in partnership with the Port Colborne Public Library, the #PortColborneProud Photo Contest provided the City with an opportunity to refresh the current inventory of images, and provide residents and visitors the ability to show us how they see Port Colborne. From Nov. 28, 2019 until Jan. 31, 2020, the City of Port Colborne accepted photos from resident and visitor amateur photographers that capture what is beautiful, creative, innovative, and authentic about the city. PORTicipants were also encouraged to share their entries on social media using the hashtag #PortColborneProud and mentioning the City of Port Colborne and Port Colborne Public Library on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter. To be eligible to submit a photo(s) entrants were to be amateur photographers, at least 19 years of age, and residents and visitors of Port Colborne who are residents of Canada (with the exception of Quebec). The City received 109 submissions and a panel of judges narrowed it down to 10 finalists, between two categories, for the public to vote on. Voting was open online from Tuesday, Feb. 25 – Tuesday, Mar. 3. For more information about the #PortColborneProud photo contest, and to read the terms and conditions, visit www.portcolborne.ca/page/PortColborneProud.
