‘Inspiration’ the theme for Delta’s Earth Day photo contest

Delta residents ages five and up can submit their photos until March 31

Delta residents and city staff are invited to participate in the City of Delta’s 14th annual Earth Day Photo Contest.

In honour of nature providing a source of motivation and stimulation to persevere through hard times, the theme of this year’s contest is “Inspiration.”

From now through March 31, residents ages five and up can take a photo in Delta and submit it — along with their name, a title and short description explaining how the photo inspired them — at letstalk.delta.ca/earthdaycontest.

One Grand Prize winner will be selected along with three winners in four categories: Adult (ages 18+), Teen (12-17 years old), Youth (5-11 years old) and City of Delta staff (entries in this category are not eligible for the grand prize). As well, residents will be able to vote online for a “fan favourite” from among all entries April 1-14.

Grand Prize, age category and Fan Favourite winners will each receive a gift certificate and have their photos displayed online.

Winners of the City of Delta’s 14th annual Earth Day Photo Contest will be announced on Monday, April 25.
