Neighbourhood watch

Your colleagues use their cell phones to show their world outside the office

Cell phone selfies are ubiquitous and we didn’t receive a single one for the Canadian cell phone photo contest that we launched in our August issue. Yay! What we did get was pretty much what we asked for: shots taken around your neighbourhood. What shots! What neighbourhoods!

Entries included a gigantic bubble and a giant rutabaga; a canola field near Drumheller, Alberta and an island in Ontario’s Georgian Bay. There were sunsets — every contest needs sunsets — and a fish with a model car, likely a first for any contest. Frost on rose hips in Langley, BC, and a goose and bannock roast on Moose Factory Island. We’re a diverse nation indeed.

But how to decide on a winner? The judges went back and forth, and back and forth, and argued for their favourites. In the end, content ruled.

The winner receives a $50 gift certificate from a choice of Mountain Equipment Co-op, Lee Valley Tools or Canadian Tire, second a $35 certificate, third $25.
