Youth photo contest seeks submissions

Submission deadline on Jan. 11 and photos will be on display

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.

An exact date and location are still to be determined.

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