City honours photographers

Photography contest coincided with OCP review, sought White Rock pride.

White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin congratulates Garry Dosa on his first-place photograph.

A handful of participants in a recent photography contest were honoured by the City of White Rock at a council meeting last month.

The contest was launched in May, as part of the city’s Official Community Plan review, and asked participants to submit photos that reflected their pride for White Rock.

More than 100 entries were submitted in three age categories, according to staff, including adult, senior and child.

The overall winning photograph was submitted by Garry Dosa, whose snapshot entitled ‘Pier at Night’ captured still waters, hazy skies and a full moon reflecting upon Semiahmoo Bay.

Another of Dosa’s submissions, a picture of White Rock at night shot from the water, also tied for first place with Zihni Ozselman in the adult category.

First prize in the senior category went to Suzyn Regan’s image of the pier shot on a foggy morning, and honorable mention in the child category was given to Cristiano Rosini, who submitted a photo of a child in a tree.

First-place winners in each category received a print of their photograph, presented by Mayor Wayne Baldwin.
