Sparwood Photo Contest

Show us what you love about Sparwood!

Share your favorite photo of the community for a chance to win a Sparwood prize package and get your photo recognized!

The contest is open to anyone who loves, lives or visits the community of Sparwood. Each photographer may submit up to 5 images.  We encourage photos of all seasons, so if the photo wasn’t taken this summer – that is okay.

The winner will be determined by a random draw of the top 5 photos with the most ‘Likes’.

Don’t forget to vote for your favorites by ‘liking’ the image on the Sparwood, BC Facebook page
