Sudburians Celebrate 150
Local Photography Contest Celebrates Canada’s 150th and Sudbury’s Rich History


SUDBURY, ON – June 20, 2017 – Artists on Elgin celebrates Canada 150 with a launch of 150 postcards of Sudbury.  Over 800 images were submitted by local photographers of all ages and experience to the Capture Sudbury photo contest depicting favourite aspects of the city: historical locations, buildings, people, nightlife, activities, contemporary issues, nature, and what the public loves about Sudbury.

After an overwhelmingly positive response to the project, 150 images were selected and some community groups and local businesses sponsored favourite images to be printed as postcards for Canada Day.

The images are stunning and unique and are a way to fall in love with the city’s beauty all over again.

The public is invited on July 1st at the Downtown Market from 8am-3pm to view all 150 photos as well as the winners of the Juror’s Choice, the People’s Choice and the Runner-Up awards.  The community group and local business choices will also be revealed on July 1st. The postcards will also be available for purchase at Artists on Elgin as a fundraiser to support local artists.
