Join us in Celebrating OurLand@150!

What better way to celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday than to showcase its natural beauty! That’s why this summer we’re inviting residents of Ontario between the ages of 13-25 to participate in the OLTA’s OurLand@150 Youth Photography Contest.

We’re looking for any photo that captures nature in Ontario and was taken in 2016 or 2017. The natural world is filled with mystery and wonder, so get creative and show us the beauty our province has to offer!

The best part? We’re only accepting photos taken using a mobile device! That’s right folks- you don’t need fancy equipment to enter, just your phones! Feel free to use any filter, photo editor, or phone lens to enhance your images. We want to see Ontario through your eyes.

Starting on July 28th, 2017 @ 9:00 am EST you can upload up to 5 submissions to our contest page. We’ll be accepting entries until August 27th, 2017 at 11:59 pm EST. Make sure you send us your images by then!

All submissions will be reviewed by our panel of judges who will select the top 150 entries. From there, it’s in the public’s hands. Get everyone you know to vote via social media for their favourite image to make the top 30! We’ll showcase those top 30 photos at the Arta Gallery in the Distillery district in downtown Toronto!

If your photo makes it to the top 5, you’ll be flown out to Toronto to see the OurLand@150 exhibition and attend the celebration gala where you will receive some exciting prizes!

Are you ready?  Show us your Ontario.


Give us Your Best Shot!

The exhibition images will be printed by Pikto, a Toronto based printing company that can meet any printing need!
