More than 1000 entries received for photography contest

There is still time to enter the photo contest put on by London Drugs, Black Press and the Abbotsford International Airshow.



More than 1000 entries have already come in for the Black Press “Your Best Shot” contest.

If you are a budding photographer who sees the world from a unique perspective, then this is your chance to show the rest of the province your talents.

The Best Shot contest is open to amateur photographers from across the province. Photographers are encouraged to send in their favourite photos from the past 12 months.

Whether it’s an action-packed sports shot, a colourful scenic landscape or an amazing portrait, budding photographers are encouraged to send it in.

Contestants can submit up to five of their favourite photos for a chance to win some spectacular prizes.

The contest, which is being presented by Black Press, London Drugs and the Abbotsford International Airshow, is open now and runs until July 14.

“London Drugs is proud to be part of this exciting contest and we look forward to seeing all of the excellent photographic work being submitted,” said Jim Ruim, manager of the new Abbotsford London Drugs located at the Highstreet shopping centre.

The new location is the 77th store in Canada.

“We have a full-service camera department. We have a full range of photographic options to suit eveybody’s needs,’ he added.

All photos will be judged by a panel of experts on subject, composition, impact and other criteria.

“We are looking for photographers that have an ability to capture the moment,” said John Morrow, photographer for the Abbotsford News.

“We know there is lots of talent out there, we just need to give them the opportunity to shine.”

Finalists will receive full VIP access to the Abbotsford International Airshow with preferred viewing to take photos of all the action. They will also compete for more than $2,000 in prizes and the chance to be named the Next Generation Amateur Photographer of the Year.

Grab a camera and take your best shot during Canada Day weekend! To enter your photos, upload them here. See photo gallery of all entries.
