The 100 Mile House Free Press is holding a new photo contest in honour of Grandparents Day on Sept. 13, and families are asked to send in their favourite pictures.

Past or present, old or new – we’d like to see your best digital photographs, or even snapshots, of grandparents and grandchildren.

Random prizes will be awarded from contest sponsors Save-On-Foods and Pharmasave.

Whether the photos are funny, loving, poignant or serene, Free Press representative Martina Dopf urges families to grab the camera or dig out the albums, and then take your best shot and send it in before the deadline of Sept. 4.

“We know there are abundant and awesome photographs out there of grandparents with their grandkids.

“We would really like to encourage our local families to submit their favourites to our contest, for a chance to have their photo published in the Free Press and win a prize.”

Photo submissions can be e-mailed to or dropped off (with your name and phone number) at the Free Press office, #3-536 Horse Lake Rd., in the Uptown Plaza next to Sears.

The winning entries will be published Sept. 10.
