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.
Snap a photo of the Canadian flag (or submit a file photo that you own) and upload it to the Canadian Flag Photo Contest page on Facebook. They’re looking for your most creative shot including those taken of our red and white maple leafed icon abroad. Entries are being accepted January 25th until February 9th and then there will be a public voting period from February 10th until the 15th. The the top three photos will be profiled and the winner will be announced February 15th, 2011.
The winner will be a VIP guest at Canada Place’s Canada Day celebrations July 1st, 2011. This will include a best seats in the house for the evening fireworks show, gourmet hors d’Å“uvres & cocktails. The winner will also get a stay for two at the luxurious Pan Pacific Hotel right upstairs from the party. To top it off, you’ll be able to see your winning photo on the giant outdoor screen at Canada Place throughout all of Canada Day (where over 100,000 people will walk by).
With so much red and white waving around last year during the Olympics, and with so many patriots at home and overseas, this is your chance to win a great prize and show some national pride.
