Welcome to the start of a new year, a time of rejuvenation and renewal. As it happens, it is also time to renew our monthly photo contest with a brand new theme!
January is a good time to ask ourselves who we want to be and what we want to do in the next twelve months -- and because 2012 is a leap year, we even get one extra day to accomplish our goals!
So, in the spirit of a new view and a fresh start, this month's contest theme is "resolutions."
Of course, you can submit pictures that represent your New Year's resolutions.
- Maybe you plan to grow your own a garden and you'd like to send a macro shot of your first tomato sprout.
- Or perhaps you're finally going to climb a mountain -- you can send us a landscape shot of your hard-earned view.
- Maybe you want to spend more time with an old friend. You could start by offering to take their portrait.
Whatever you plan to do, we'd love to see your shot and hear your story. Go ahead and be creative.
You can also play with the resolution of your photographs. Extra points to anyone who uses film to blow us away.
We'll be posting your best shots each day in January. At the end of the month, we'll select five finalists and ask you to vote for your favourite.
How to enter
Upload your images here or to our CBC Your Voice Flickr pool, tagged with the words "January photo contest," or email them to: email@example.com with "January photo contest" in the subject line.
Please note: Only Canadian residents will be eligible for the final prize.
