North Bay Municipal Heritage Committee Launches the 2019-2020 Youth Engagement Photography Contest

The City of North Bay’s Municipal Heritage Committee (MHC) is pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 Youth Engagement Photography Contest for youth aged 18 and under.


The purpose of the contest is for local youth to demonstrate to the MHC what aspects of North Bay’s culture and heritage are important to them. Entrants will also be challenged to explain the significance of their photo to themselves and the community by way of a short paragraph.


The following prizes are to be awarded to winners:

1st Prize - $100 DIA GIFT CARD

2nd Prize - $50 DIA GIFT CARD

3rd Prize - $25 DIA GIFT CARD


The photograph itself may be contemporary, or taken in the recent past, but must have been taken by the entrant to the competition.


There are no fixed categories for the competition. However, entrants will be asked to consider how the photograph relates to one of three (3) broadly defined areas: Built, Natural, or Human Heritage of North Bay. Participants may choose to focus on a range of heritage features within these broadly defined categories.


Competition Overview

  • All entries must be submitted to the City of North Bay by 4:00pm on Friday May 29, 2020 . Entries received after this date/time will not be considered.
