Local photographers have just over one month left to submit their most stunning Sudbury photos to the 7th Annual Picture Our Lakes Calendar and Photography Contest. Artists on Elgin is accepting entries until Friday, June 14, and all photographers, amateur or professional, are encouraged to share their talents.

This year marks the 7th anniversary of the Picture Our Lakes Photography Contest, an event which has proved to be very popular among Sudbury's budding and professional photographers. Along with being an important fundraiser for Artists on Elgin, the contest aims to raise awareness of and appreciation for the natural beauty of Sudbury's water bodies, while encouraging the public to get involved in and support the arts.

"This year we are accepting submissions online through our website. We've also made it free to enter, which makes it even easier for photographers of all ages and abilities to participate. You can submit up to 4 photographs, and the more you enter the more chances you have to win." says Janie Beauparlant, Marketing and Public Affairs Officer for Artists on Elgin.

The Picture Our Lakes Photography Contest is open to photographers of all ages and abilities. All photos must have been taken within the City of Greater Sudbury, and must feature some element of water. Photos can be submitted in one of five categories: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Youth (under 18). Enter online at www.artistsonelgin.ca or contact Artists on Elgin for more information.

Artists on Elgin is a project of its parent organization, The Northern Artist Gallery, where artists can exhibit, promote and sell their work in an attractive and professional gallery space. Artists on Elgin aims to build mutually beneficial partnerships between the artists and the community by addressing the business and marketing needs of the local art industry.
