Photos win tourism contest

This year’s winning photos showcased the beauty of Campbell River & Region’s waterfront

Tourism Campbell River & Region is delighted with the tremendous response it received in 2014 for its photo contest.

This year’s winning photos showcased the beauty of Campbell River & Region’s waterfront.

“It was great to see the natural views of our region through the eyes of the photographers,” said Teresa Davis, Manager of Tourism Campbell River & Region. “It was very challenging to choose two winners from all of the submissions. The level of creativity was very exciting.”

First place winners Kim and Kennedy Windle submitted “Rainstorms & Rainbows,” which was also chosen as the cover of the Campbell River & Region 2015 Discovery Guide. Second Place winners Alana, Cashlin and Everett Millward submitted “Ken Forde’s Beach House,” which the organization said will feature prominently on their new website in early 2015.

All photos submitted to the contest will be added to Tourism Campbell River and Region’s photo database and could be used to help market the area. “We want to thank everyone who entered the contest and encourage them to keep an eye out for their fabulous images,” said Andrea Knowles of Rivercorp.

Prizes for the contest were donated by Dolphins Resort; Painter’s Lodge, Campbell River Whale Watching and Adventure Tours, Heriot Bay Inn, Tyee Club Guide Phil Griffith, Discovery Launch Water Taxi, Budget Car & Truck Rental, Heritage River Inn, Mussels & More Pottery and the Museum at Campbell River.
