The North Vancouver Museum and Archives are hosting the “Find a Place in History” contest where residents and visitors can submit photos of heritage sites online for the chance to win prizes.
To enter the contest, take a photo of a place in North Vancouver with historical significance and upload it to your own Flickr account. Then join the North Shore History group on Flickr and go back to your photo, click “Actions” then “Add to Group”. It’s free to sign up for a Flickr account if you do not already have one and Flickr offers various levels of privacy and licensing settings on your images.
This is the second Flickr photo contest from the North Vancouver Museum and Archives. The first was a “Then and Now” competition that juxtaposed old photos of landmarks with new.
Organizedâ€© inâ€© conjunctionâ€© withâ€© BC Heritageâ€© Week last month, the contest runs until April 30th, 2011. Prizes will be handed out in three separate age categories and include a digital camera, camcorder, and e-book reader. Winners will be announced at the Sea to Sky Regional Heritage Fair held at the North Vancouver Museum and Archives May 7th, 2011.
