Youth photo contest held

AYC is seeking submissions for a photo contest in which the selected entries will be part of an upcoming exhibit

The Abbotsford Youth Council (AYC) is seeking submissions for a  photo contest in which the selected entries will be part of an upcoming exhibit.

Youth ages 12 to 18 are asked to submit photos with the following in mind: What do you like about Abbotsford and what would you like to see changed in Abbotsford?

Submissions should include a description of the photo and what the photo means to the youth.

The Youth Council will invite the selected photographers, as well as the mayor and city councillors, for a private viewing of the exhibit as part of their ongoing collaboration and shadowing project.

The exhibit will then be open for public viewing.

Photos must be submitted to christy@abbyyouth.com by Jan. 11. Prizes include $100, $50 and $25 gift cards for Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.
