"What's Your Story?"

We're proud to announce the winner of our 2nd Annual Historical Digital Photography Contest: Six-year-old Sasha Marceau!

Sasha is pictured here with our judges Jason Smirl (local photographer) and Beth Wilkins (Researcher and photographer) and with our contest producer Ken Staicesku (co-owner of family owned Foto Source).

The theme of this year's contest was "What's Your Story?" and challenged the young photographers to explore their family history and the history surrounding them in the Peace Region.

The winning photograph:

Who Sat There? by Sasha Marceau

The judges were impressed with Sasha's composition skills and the haunting human element of the lone chair sitting empty by the abandoned building near Mairie Reine.

Sasha is the winner of a $100 gift certificate for Foto Source in the Riverdrive Mall, Peace River.

The winning photo and those of the other talented entrants are on display now at the Peace River Museum. Check out these talented young photographers and their unique vision of our community's history.
