Photo contest in Rosemère: Remarkable Trees

The Town of Rosemère invites all amateur and professional photographers residing on its territory to enter its photo contest held on the theme of Remarkable Rosemère Trees. This contest will unfold from May 1st to December 31, 2017. The Town previously held a photo contest in 2015, on the theme A Season in Rosemère.  
 
Contest participants are therefore invited to identify a remarkable tree of their choice in Rosemère, to photograph it and submit their best picture, by email,  to info@ville.rosemere.qc.ca, before the deadline. Twelve winners, whose names will be unveiled in February 2018, could see their photo reproduced in the 2019 calendar and on a pennant.  Each will also receive, from the Town, a $100 Place Rosemère gift certificate.
 
"Rosemère is renowned for its country charm and its initiatives for the protection of the natural environment. Trees are part of our town’s identity.  Its citizens share these ecological values, and it is through their eyes and photographs that we would like to pay tribute to the majestic plants that make up our urban forest and provide us with a host of benefits on a daily basis,” stated Madeleine Leduc, mayor.
