A year-long photo contest to help celebrate Canada's 150th birthday

To coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday, KML readers are invited to tap into their creative side by entering the “Made in Canada” photo contest. Throughout 2017, we encourage Canadian readers (excluding Quebec residents) to snap pictures of various iconic products, ingredients, menu dishes as well as hotels and resorts that reflect a Canadian sensibility and provide a visual perspective on what this country is all about.

Each month a judging panel comprised of F&H and Hotelier editorial team, photographers, contest sponsors, editorial board members and graphic designers will choose a total of 10 photos that reflect strong composition, exposure and focus while adhering to a Canadian theme. By the end of 2017, the magazines will have a collection of 150 images from which to choose 10 “Grand Winners,” whose submissions will be featured in the December issue of both F&H and Hotelier magazine.

Winners will be announced and fêted at 2017 December Pinnacle Awards Luncheon.
