The City of Edmonton’s Winterscapes photo contest is back to recognize Edmontonians who beautify their neighbourhoods and build community spirit. Even while covered in snow, a yard or an outdoor space can be a wonderful canvas to create beautiful scenes to add colour and joy to your area and for your neighbours to safely enjoy. You may have already seen homemade toboggan hills in front or back yards, bringing joy to all who play or watch.

A winterscape can include snow, ice, lights, ornaments and winter-themed scenery and can be built in a front yard or in a public space. Participate by nominating an outdoor space that brings you joy, including your own, at in one of three categories: Winter Art, Winter Garden or Winter Play.

Nominations are accepted until February 28. All submitted photos will be posted on the City of Edmonton’s Facebook page for public voting. Weekly prizes will be awarded to the top three yards in each category, and a special award will be given to the Winterscapes judging panel’s favourite front yard.
