The City’s Municipal Heritage Committee is looking for local youth to show them what aspects of North Bay’s culture and heritage are important to them.

The 2019 Youth Engagement Photography Contest is now accepting entries from young people 18 and under.

There’s no fixed categories but there are three broadly defined areas including built, natural or human heritage of North Bay.

Entrants will also be challenged to explain the significance of their photo to themselves and the community by way of a short paragraph.

Prizes include:
1st Prize – $100 DIA GIFT CARD
2nd Prize – $50 DIA GIFT CARD
3rd Prize – $25 DIA GIFT CARD
The photograph itself may be contemporary, or taken in the recent past, but must have been taken by the entrant to the competition.

The deadline is May 29th, 2020.

Competition Overview
All entries must be submitted to the City of North Bay by 4:00pm on Friday May 29, 2020. Entries received after this date/time will not be considered.
The competition winner will be announced later at the Heritage Fair taking place at Nipissing University.
Participants are required to submit the photograph, together with a completed Photographic Release Form and potentially a Model Release Form or Art Release Form (depending on the nature of the submission).
Entries can be e-mailed to or mailed to: 200 McIntyre Street East – 2nd Floor (Planning & Building Services Department)North Bay, ON P1B 8H8
