For an eighth year, Bassin Versant Saint-Maurice (BVSM) is launching the Vue d'en EAU Photo Contest and invites photography enthusiasts to find the photo that best represents BVSM's mission and territory of intervention!
To be eligible, the photographs submitted for this photo contest must be captured in the BVSM's territory of intervention. They must also be related to nature, fauna, flora or aquatic ecosystems. The author of the winning photograph will be awarded a prize valued at more than $500, including a canvas reproduction of his or her work. The latter will be selected by the organization's internal team and board of directors. The winning photograph will appear on BVSM's promotional tools throughout 2021!
"Despite the current context, we have decided to keep our photo contest on the agenda as planned. Indeed, we see this period of forced confinement as a privileged moment for our participants to dig into their respective image banks and recall, through each of them, the unforgettable moments attached to them. " says Stéphanie Chabrun, Executive Director of BVSM.
Participants will have from April 1 to August 31, 2020 to complete the entry form and submit a maximum of two photographs via the BVSM website. For full details and contest rules and regulations, visit www.bvsm.ca/concoursphoto (French only). The unveiling of the winning photograph will take place on November 5, during the benefit dinner for the Trou à Barbotte: www.bvsm.ca/trou (French only).
