  • Summer 2017 Photo Contest

    For the staff here at Visit South Georgian Bay, we feel like the summer just came and went with the snap of our fingers. It also didn’t help that we seemed to have more rainy days then sunny days. Alas, we still had some great photo submissions for our summer photo contest.

    With so many photos that we thought truly represented summer time in South Georgian Bay, it was very difficult for our judges to choose the winners. Each photo we received was unique and showcased the recreational excitement and natural beauty that is South Georgian Bay.

    A BIG thank you to those who submitted photos by posting on our Facebook wall, or by using the #SGeorgianBay hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This photo contest was a lot of fun and we’re so pleased by the number of submissions we received. Make sure to like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram to see the winning photos, find out about future contests & updates on other fun things we have going on!

    Our 6 winners received some great swag for their efforts. The winners received prizes from some fantastic local attractions like Scenic Caves, Scandinave Spa, Blue Mountain Go Karts, Northwinds Brewery, Creemore Springs Brewery and the Collingwood Olive Oil Co. Thank you again to everyone who participated, and a huge congrats to the winners. We look forward to viewing photos for our next photo contest. Stay tuned!
