Big prize offered in BC Hydro photo contest

BC Hydro is calling for photos for the fourth annual Team Power Smart photo contest.

BC Hydro is calling for photos for the fourth annual Team Power Smart photo contest. Original photos can be submitted online until Oct. 15 for a chance at winning a digital camera.

This year’s theme is wasteful behaviour, and judges will look for how entries capture wastefulness — whether that’s a kitchen tap left running, a thermostat set to high or a half-empty clothes dryer.

A judging panel will choose the top ten photos and the winning entry on Nov. 1. The winner will receive a Nikon D7000 SLR camera package from London Drugs and the winning photo will be featured in newspaper advertisements in the winner’s community and in newspapers on the Lower Mainland and in Victoria.

The top ten photos will be displayed at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria during a photography exhibition this winter.

Team Power Smart members are eligible to submit an entry. All British Columbians can join Team Power Smart for free at bchydro.com to get access to exclusive member contests and rewards and to learn about saving energy.

BC Hydro runs the Team Power Smart photo contest each year in the lead-up to Power Smart Month. Each October, for Power Smart Month, BC Hydro provides increased rebates and incentives to residential and commercial customers to encourage them to adopt energy efficient products and behaviours.
