Capture essense of Alberni arts district

The Rotary Arts District is holding a photo contest to celebrate all that is beautiful between the Rollin Arts Centre and Harbour Quay.

Picture this: you take a photo and win a prize for capturing the beauty of Port Alberni’s Rotary Arts District.

The Rotary Arts District is holding a photo contest to celebrate all that is beautiful in the blocks between the Rollin Arts Centre and Harbour Quay. Enter a photo from 2012 in one of five categories to have a chance to win tickets and gift certificates from the artsy venues on Argyle Street.

“We are hoping this contest will encourage people in Port Alberni to see the Rotary Arts District with fresh eyes, to come to this part of town and see the real beauty that is here,” says Teresa Bird, chair of the Rotary Arts District Get People Here Task Force.

“We want to promote and attract people to this area, to appreciate the variety and depth of the fine arts that are beginning to congregate here.”

The contest is open to amateur photographers of all ages and photographs can be submitted in one of five categories: people, the natural environment, buildings, abstract and a photo manipulated with software.

The winners will be judged by a panel of photographers and announced at the inaugural RAD Light Up Your HeART event planned for Dec. 1.

To enter, e-mail your photo along with your name, phone number and the category to: rotaryartsdistrict@gmail.com and write “photo contest” in the subject line.
