Photography Contest


    "Canopy Ride Above Port Colborne" by Richard O'Neil - winner of the 2012 Summer Photography Competition



      Photography Competition's on Niagara's South Coast


    Throughout the year the City of Port Colborne has encouraged photographers of all skill levels to capture images of people, events, holidays, breathtaking landscapes and mother-nature and to share with us their vision of Niagara's South Coast. As we transition into fall, the City of Port Colborne is launching its fall 2012 Photography Competition - "All things Fall".

    Photos of the impressive fall colours, a young child playing in a just raked pile of leafs, birds flying across the lake at dawn, displays of seasonal produce and let's not forget the scariest night of the year, Halloween!.... Look around at any moment, photographic opportunities are everywhere. It's time to share your photographic talent and reveal your vision of the city we live and play in.

     Dare to Challenge your creativity!
