Valerie Diamond of Comox was one of four runners-up in this year’s provincewide BC Culture Days Black Press I ♥ Culture photo contest.
Diamond’s First Nation Drum shot was chosen from 134 entries by 23,971 votes cast all across the province. She earned a Safeway gift certificate.
The contest was part of the leadup to the Culture Days weekend Sept. 27 to 29.
During the fourth annual Culture Days more than 500 free, interactive activities took place in 46 communities across B.C., joining thousands of similar activities across Canada that invited people to get involved with local arts and artists in their communities to share their love of culture. To tie in with the weekend, the Black Press I ♥ Culture contest invited the public to enter photos of what they love about culture in B.C.
