News Mar 13, 2017 Flamborough Review

Two entries snapped in Flamborough are among the winners of the 2017 Greenbelt Photo Contest, and will be featured as part of a special installation at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg until June 30.

The contest is organized by the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation, the Professional Photographers of Canada and the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. The winners were announced at a special event at the McMichael in early March.

Selected by a jury of professional photographers and creative employees from the three participating organizations, the winning photographs captured the beauty of the lakes, rivers, and waterways of the Greenbelt. The water theme was chosen to celebrate the province’s plan to add 21 urban river valleys and seven coastal wetlands to the Greenbelt.

This year’s overall winner was Shari Chambers, for her entry taken at Bruce Peninsula National Park, and Peter Dusek’s photo taken at Island Lake Conservation Area was named People’s Choice Winner. In addition, 20 General Winners will be featured in the exhibition, including a shot taken by Vartkes Paltekoglu at Grindstone Creek and a photo taken by Angeline Vanderboom at Lynden’s Fairchild Creek.

Between Oct. 30 and Jan. 10, more than 800 submissions depicting stunning waterfalls, still lakes, rivers and streams and people enjoying recreational activities around the Greenbelt were submitted. All the winning photographs can be found at greenbelt.ca/photo_winners_2017.

“The Greenbelt protects the vital natural and agricultural resources in our region, and water is perhaps the most precious resource of all,” said Burkhard Mausberg, CEO of the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation. “These winning photos, and all 800 submissions, showcase the beauty and importance of protecting water in the Greenbelt and beyond. The Foundation congratulates the winners and thanks all the photographers for their excellent submissions.”
