Students Picture Nature

A photo contest presented by Guelph Urban Forest Friends and Nature in the Neighbourhood

This exciting joint project between the Guelph Urban Forest Friends (GUFF) and Nature in the Neighbourhood (NitN) aims to encourage young people to get outside, and look at the natural world with a fresh perspective.

Results Announced

Guelph Urban Forest Friends and Nature in the Neighbourhood announce the winners of the 2012 Photo Contest for Guelph Secondary Students. This contest asked students to view the natural world from a new perspective and take pictures that could be submitted under 3 categories.

Local businesses that have supported this endeavor include The Stone Store, Meridian Credit Union, Kloepfers Custom Framing and Gallery, Icon Photography and the Bookshelf.

We unveiled the winning photos at a special celebration on Thursday December 6, 2012 at 7:30 pm at 10 Carden St. opposite City Hall. The photos will be on display there for about 2 weeks before moving on to other locations around Guelph including our sponsors and selected public libraries.
