A community newspaper serves its readership by reflecting not only the “news” that happens within its local borders but also the people, places and events that make it unique.
While Oak Bay shares many similarities with its neighbouring Greater Victoria communities, for example, it also has a distinctive character that is reflected in its villages, businesses and homes, its streetscapes and special events and in its contributions from local residents.
It’s with this in mind that the Oak Bay News launches our second annual special section, Snapshot: Our Community in Pictures, an opportunity to celebrate Oak Bay in photos.
We are calling on all our community photographers – and we know there’s many of you out there – to show us all that makes Oak Bay such a fantastic place in which to live, work and play.
Is it the numerous municipal parks that dot the landscape? The interesting homes and gardens? The long sandy beaches and unique ecosystems? The many volunteers hard at work to make our local organizations hum?
Whatever “Oak Bay” means to you, we want to see it.
After all, haven’t we got an awful lot to celebrate?
Our Community in Pictures will be published in the Oak Bay News on Wednesday, July 29.
Send your photos to editor Jennifer Blyth at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, July 20 to have your photo considered. For best print results, photos should be high-resolution, preferably 300dpi, and please include the photographer’s name, where the photo was taken, and any other pertinent information. For more details, please call 250-480-3239.
We can’t wait to see what makes Oak Bay special to you!
