From friendly faces to breathtaking landscapes, neighbours captured the unique beauty of Canada’s neighbourhoods in one-of-kind photography contest
Today, Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND), the neighbourhood network, announced the winners of the national #LoveYourNeighbourhood contest, a special initiative that invited neighbours from across Canada to celebrate the local flavour, people and beauty of their neighborhoods through photographs. Selected from thousands of entries ranging from friendly faces to urban wildlife, breathtaking landscapes to sunrises in the city, the national grand prize is awarded to Sean McCormick from Strathmore, Alberta for his photo of a local canal. Taken at dusk, the photo captures the Tom Sadler bridge, a Strathmore landmark named after a retired teacher and conservationist who played an important role developing green space in the community.
Contest runners up include:
- Melissa Pol of Mississauga, Ontario’s photo of Lake Aquitaine, a beautiful, tranquil spot to watch the sunset.
- Jim Su, of Surrey, British Columbia’s photo of a beautiful golden ear mountain at sunset.
- Mary DeGregorio of Mississauga, Ontario’s photo of a natural ice sculpture spotted during a walk along the Port Credit waterfront.
“After reviewing thousands of images we received, one thing is clear– the beauty and inspiration that can be found right outside our doors is insurmountable,” said Christopher Doyle, Managing Director of Nextdoor Canada. “What’s even more inspiring, is the passion, spirit and connections neighbours were able to capture and share. It truly exemplifies why Canadians love their neighbourhoods.”
“It was amazing to get an insight into so many diverse neighbourhoods across Canada through the photographs that were submitted,” said Abe Ebbasa, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment photographer and contest judge. There’s a ton of talent amongst our Canadian neighbours and this contest definitely highlighted that.
The grand prize winner will be awarded a $500 gift card to Airbnb to explore a neighbourhood of their choice. To explore the national entries, visit https://nextdoor.com/hashtag/loveyourneighbourhood. For more information about the #LoveYourNeighborhood contest visit: nextdoor.com/LYN.
