City of Toronto launches third photography contest celebrating "Our Common Grounds"
  
Today, the City of Toronto launched its third Snap & Share photo contest, led by Parks, Forestry and Recreation and presented by Nikon Canada. From May 15 to July 31, shutterbugs are invited to snap and share photos of "Our Common Grounds" – the parks, ravines and recreation programs where Torontonians come together as a community.

The expert panel of judges for the contest includes Nikon Ambassadors Kristian Bogner and Neil Ever Osborne, and Toronto-based freelance photographer Taku Kumabe. Osborne and Kumabe will also provide coaching sessions to the winners of the photography tour category of the contest.

Judges will review short-listed photos and winners will be notified in September 2017. Prizes include a Nikon D5600 kit with body and an 18-55mm lens, three COOLPIX L840 cameras with 38x optical zoom, eight Nikon COOLPIX A10 cameras with 5x optical zoom and weekly prizes.

Winning images will be exhibited at City Hall and other civic centres, featured on the City's website and used in various publications and communication materials. Previous year's entries have been featured on TTC shelters, the City's social media feeds and the Toronto.ca website.

Snap & Share contest categories include Our Common Grounds, Hidden Gems, City of Sport, Toronto Blooms, TO Canada with Love and Toronto Photography Tour.

More information about the contest is available and submissions can be made to http://www.toronto.ca/photocontest.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto will honour Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions.
