Pictures will speak a thousand words for the Artists on Elgin.
The Picture Our Lakes 2014 photography calendar is a cornerstone of the organizations fundraising efforts and documents the many local lakes.
This event was held at the Living with Lakes Centre on Sept. 19, from 5-7 p.m. As in previous years the Artists on Elgin committee was overwhelmed by submissions.
Overall, 200 images were sent in by interested parties.
The top winner was Allan Oman, with his Vermillion River photo gracing the calendar's cover. The People’s Choice Award was given to Gerri Kusnierczyk, while Nicholas Bouchard was the winner of the Youth Category.
Marketing and Public Affairs Officer Janie Beauparlant oversaw the assembly of this year’s calendar working closely with volunteers.
“It was exciting, with many photos being sent in by talented photographers,” she said.
The calendars can be purchased for $20 with discounts being applied to bulk orders. The calendar is being sold at Artists on Elgin, Sudbury Library branches and Sheets and Showers.
