Canadian Flag Photo Contest

January 25th, 2011 @ 5:54pm (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

The National Flag of Canada Day is coming up February 15th and while it’s an occasion that could slip past many, there’s a very good reason to pay attention this year. Canada Place, who usually celebrates “Flag Day” with a ceremony along and themed birthday cake, is hosting the Canadian Flag Photo Contest.

    Nice must get in on this one! Thanks for the heads up!

    Reading the rules, it’s great to see that the contest holder does NOT ask for ownership of the photo, only the perpetual right to display it without payment. A progressive change, good to see. It ensures that shooters like me will submit !
