The Powell River Public Library is having a photography competition focused on local gardens. There are prizes for the winning photo and the top twelve submissions will be featured in a 2018 Calendar. The deadline is noon on Monday, June 5, 2017.
Each Powell River / Powell River Regional District resident is entitled to submit one picture. The picture must be in digital format. (Print pictures can be scanned at the Library).
It must be taken in the City of Powell River or the Powell River Regional District and showcase: Outdoor ornamental gardens, vegetable gardens, orchards or human managed food forests.
