Photo Contest!

Photo Contest

For the second year in a row, Spitting Images is working with The Kawartha Promoter to bring you the Explore Bobcaygeon and Explore Fenelon Falls Photo Contest. This year is even better, with more categories, unlimited entries and more prizes!

All entries are eligible to have your photos published in the annual tourism publications which are published in partnership with the Bobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls Chamber of Commerce.

There will be one grand prize of a 20″ x 16″ stretched canvas print from Spitting Images. Winners of each category will also receive a $25 gift certificate from Spitting Images to be used online or in studio!

Fred Thornhill, James Goodliff and Kevin Foster will again be this years contest judges. They’ll each be looking for specific traits of the photos to determine the winners. Fred will be looking at the photographic skills of the photographer, James is looking for overall artistic merit and Kevin will focus on the technical image quality required for printing and large format reproductions.

For more information about the contest, including how to enter and the rules and regulations, please visit the official contest page here.
