Welcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.
This week’s challenge encourages you to:
Upload your best photos to Kingstonist’s Flickr group. It’s time once again for Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest. Twice a year we challenge local shutterbugs to enter their best photos of the Limestone City in our two week-long contest where our readers decide the outcome. If you would like your photo to be considered for our upcoming Greatest Photo Contest, June 2013 edition, head on over to Kingstonist’s Flickr group and upload your best photos that have been taken in and around Kingston. It doesn’t matter if they were snapped today or 10 years ago, so long as they are truly local, and honestly yours. Hopeful contestants will have until midnight on Saturday, June 15th to submit entries until their heart’s content. From there, Kingstonist’s jury will comb through the submissions we’ve received since our last Greatest Photo Contest and come away with a small group of final contestants. Last but not least comes the fun part, where we’ll once again turn to our readers and friends to vote for their favourite photos from June 17th until June 30th. With prizes and bragging rights on the line, we hope you’ll join in the fun and take part.
