July Photo Contest: Picnic Time!

Categories: Community

si_picnictime.jpgJuly is the perfect month to celebrate life's simplest pleasures -- food, friends, and fun in the sun.

The weather is warm, spirits are high, and the world almost seems to have slowed down, just a little bit, to let us sit back and enjoy the ride.

There are plenty of outdoor spaces that lend themselves well to this month, wherever you live in Canada -- and lots of fresh, seasonal produce to be found as well!

So, in the spirit of summertime eats and sunny days, we're dedicating this month's photo contest to the picnic.

Our theme can be interpreted however you like, within reason: Wine and cheese for two on the beach, hot dogs with the family at a local park, a backyard tailgate party, or even a massive neighbourhood cookout -- bring out your camera and show us what you've got!
