A few days left to enter Photo Salon competition

Harbour City Photography Club’s Photo Salon entry deadline is Thursday, Feb. 28

The Harbour City Photography Club is hoping its Photo Salon will be an eye-catching photo gallery.

The Photo Salon event entry deadline is Thursday, Feb. 28, and the club is inviting photographers of any level to enter. People from all of Vancouver Island and surrounding islands are welcome to submit images and have a chance to win numerous prizes including a stay at the Chateau Victoria.

The photography categories are nature, black and white, digital art, and open.

There is an entry fee of $10, and there will be a charge of $10 to have prints exhibited at the Photo Salon at VIU’s View Gallery from May 27-June 14. A panel of judges will adjudicate the entries and choose first, second and third place in each category; there will also be a People’s Choice award.
