Windsor Photo Challenge
Full Contest Rules...
Are you a professional, amateur or hobbyist photographer that loves to capture “those moments” on film (or should I say, digitally)? Are you willing to share those captured moments with the Town of Windsor and the rest of the world? YOU ARE?! Well, here’s what we have happenin’...
We are looking for 12 amazing photos that represent Windsor. Actually, the more photos the better but there are only prizes for 12.
The Town of Windsor invites you to enter our Windsor Photo Challenge. Snapshots of our lake, waterfront, festivities, events, recreational moments, scenery, museums and historical properties, activities, greenery, you name it...we want to see it & use it. They can be past or present photos.
To make it fair, professional photos will only be judged against other professional photos...hobbyists/amateur photos against other hobbyist/amateur photos.
Okay, okay, okay...so, what do you get? What do we get?
It’s really simple. There will be the top six photos from the professional category and top six from the amateur/hobbyist category. ALL 12 prizes are the same – how cool is that?! Each will be awarded a $100 gift certificate to a local, Windsor-merchant of your choice (that’s even more awesome, right)?!
So, now what do we (the Town of Windsor) get?
Well, we get the rights to use your photos on our website, postcards, brochures, etc. But no worries, of course all the credit goes to you. We will ensure the photos include your name as the photographer (i.e. “photographed by...”). The Town would also use any remaining photos (that were not in the Top 12); but again, credit will go to YOU!
Excited? We are! Start focusing & capturing our town; your community today!

This is a province-wide telephone Helpline service offered by Feed Nova Scotia with partial funding from Department of Community Services. As you may be aware, Helpline is a telephone-based program that helps to strengthen families and communities by connecting people with resources and support.
The nature of the calls received through Helpline varies considerably, often relating to such issues as parenting, grief, self-harm, addictions, sexuality, domestic disputes, and food or shelter insecurity. As part of the provincial expansion, Feed Nova Scotia has placed particular emphasis on increasing its knowledge of community based services throughout the province, and strengthening its capacity in the area of parental support. Helpline provides non-clinical, empathetic support and connects callers with the services that can best be of help to them. Any calls that require emergency intervention are referred to 911.
Helpline is available toll-free to all Nova Scotians by calling 1-877-521-1188. The service has recently expanded to 15 hours per day, available 7 days a week from 8am to 11pm. It is hoped that Helpline will provide 24-hour coverage by the spring of 2011.
