2018 Algonquin Landmarks Photo / Art Contest Winners
The Algonquin Landmark Photo / Art Contest
For more than 125 years Algonquin Park has inspired people to create great works of art or take a picture to remember their visit. This summer is Ontario Parks 125th anniversary so we’d like to inspire you to get out side and visit Algonquin Provincial Park to create great works of art or capture a beautiful scene with your camera.
We’ve provided a list of great Algonquin Park landmarks below, your job is to visit any of these landmarks and capture an image or paint a picture from that land mark. If you really feel inspired you are allowed to enter 32 images, one from each location on the list below: [ SEE LARGE MAP ]
