Photographer sponsors promotion

Take and post lots of pics in and around downtown Courtenay until Dec. 21.

Do you need inspiration for a downtown Courtenay photo contest? Check these examples.

My downtown is a fun place to be, especially in December with all the WinterFest activities taking place.

Because downtown Courtenay is important to my cultural, creative, and commercial life, hanspetermeyer.ca is sponsoring a photo promotion this December. I’m inviting everyone with a camera or a smart phone to play along, have some fun, document and celebrate the fun of WinterFest, and enter to win a weekly $50 gift card from a downtown merchant.

Here’s how to play:

Take and post lots of pics in and around downtown Courtenay until Dec. 21.

You can post them to Instagram, Twitter or Flickr, but the best places are the Downtown Courtenay Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DowntownCourtenay.

All pics must use the #DowntownCourtenay hashtag/ #tag.

You’re encouraged to work with these weekly themes:

• Dec. 1 to 7 — Delicious Downtown – Tantalizing Tastes from Farm to Fork;

• Dec. 8 to 14 — Walk on the Wild Side;

• Dec. 15 to 21 — Twas the Night Before.

A random draw at the end of every week will award $50 gift cards donated by #DowntownCourtenay merchants.

For inspiration and photo-worthy events, visit the downtown Courtenay WinterFest Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DowntownCourtenayWinterFest.

The winning images and names of the winners will be available every week.

Don’t know how to post photographs to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Flickr? E-mail them to connect@hanspetermeyer.com and put “Fotos for #DowntownCourtenay” in the subject line.
