In March 2013, travel photographer and popular blogger David duChemin is coming to the Canadian Rockies at the invite of oopoomoo for a weekend photography extravaganza in the small mountain town of Bragg Creek, Alberta. There are still a few spots left for the exclusive weekend event (Friday night Meet-n-Greet, Saturday full day seminar and Sunday’s field workshops). Only people who sign up for the full meal deal are able to attend all three events, but you can still come and meet David on Friday March 15, 2013 if you enter and win one of six monthly photo contests (see full rules and guidelines).
Until word gets out, your chances of winning are actually quite good; in May, we only had six entries! Part of the reason why this contest may not attract as many entries as most could be because this contest has a twist; only images taken within a distance accessed by the photographer’s own non-motorized, locomotive power can be entered into this contest! We wouldn’t want to call photographers lazy, now would we?
The entries and the winner for May are below. So far for June we have only one entry so get out walking, skateboarding or biking for photos and get your entry in for June (just follow the guidelines and send us your shot by the deadline of June 30 11:59pm MST)! This contest runs monthly until October so if you miss the June deadline, not to worry.
Chris Martin, a renowned photographer from Bragg Creek and Bob Cook, owner of Branded Visuals (a wonderful photo gallery in Bragg Creek) were our celebrity judges for the May contest. Thanks guys for arm-wrestling for a winner!
And the winner is Tim Lutic for this photo of the Muttart Conservatory in Edmonton Alberta. Congratulations to Tim and see you in March for beer with David!
