#EGProud Photo Contest

2017 is a time to look back and reflect on the last 150 years of our great nation, of how we have grown and come together to shape our own identity and become a place we are all proud to call home. Not only do we share that experience, but we share the experience of making our own small pocket of Canada home. East Gwillimbury is a unique community with beautiful rural space and urban communities. We want to see what makes you #EGproud.

The Town of East Gwillimbury is in search of the best photos that encapsulate the spirit and pride of East Gwillimbury! The most popular 12 photos will be featured in a 2018 Town of East Gwillimbury Calendar! Photos will also be kept to showcase the Town in future materials such as Town Guides and pamphlets.

Images should showcase the beauty and wonder of East Gwillimbury. Whether it is the natural Canadian landscapes found in the area, someone experiencing all that East Gwillimbury has to offer or the vibrant bustle of one of our communities. Capture those moments and share with us what East Gwillimbury means to you!
