Shutterbugs share your best faces and places of Oak Bay

Deadline to submit for the Oak Bay News annual celebration of the community in photos is July 23

A community newspaper serves its readership by reflecting the local news and the people, places and events that make it unique.

While Oak Bay shares many similarities with its neighbouring Greater Victoria communities, it also has a distinctive character reflected in its villages, businesses and homes, streetscapes and special events and in its contributions from local residents.

With this in mind, the Oak Bay News launches our third annual special section, a snapshot of Oak Bay called Great Faces and Special Places. It affords talented Oak Bay readers an opportunity to celebrate our community in photos.

We call on all our community photographers with cameras or cell phones to show us all that makes Oak Bay such a fantastic place in which to live, work and play.

If the municpal parks inspire you, share a shot to inspire others. If interesting architecture is your thing, we’d love to showcase that for our readers.

From beaches adored this time of year, to volunteers hard at work to make local organizations thrive, whatever says Oak Bay to you, we’d love to see it, and share it.

The Great Faces and Special Places is set to print in the Oak Bay News print edition on July 26.

Send your photos to by Sunday, July 23 to have your photo considered for publication in print and online. For best presentation, photos should be high resolution and include the photographer’s name, where the photo was taken, and any other interesting details. For more details, call 250-480-3260.
