Photo contest highlights local women

Feature your female family members for Women’s Day

The public is invited to help highlight Women of the Cariboo with photos to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8.

Terri Lewis, executive director of the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre (WC), encourages camera buffs to feature the women in their family and/or their friends.

“We need your photos of the extraordinary women in your life. The Women’s Centre is looking for photos of Cariboo women past and present.”

Whether they are captured singing, laughing, horseback riding, fishing or hugging their children, Lewis suggests folks decide the best setting and then take their best shot of their mothers, sisters, friends, daughters or grandmothers.

Then send in the photos to help the WC celebrate International Women’s Day.

If your photo is chosen, the WC will show case your photo in a special gallery event on March 12.

Entries may be digital photos or film, colour or black-and-white, but must be submitted by March 6.

E-mail your photos to or mail to the 100 Mile House Women’s Centre, #102-475 Birch Ave., 100 Mile House, B.C., V0K 2E0.

Be sure to include your name, the photographer’s name, phone number and e-mail or physical address, as well as photo information, such as the people, place and activity featured.

It is important to note that you must have permission from the person or persons in the photo to use the photo, and you also need to identify the women from left to right with their correct name spellings.

Lewis notes all photos become property of the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre for promotional purposes.

“Thanks to Al and April Roberts at A&B Video for helping to sponsor this event.”
