Professional photographer Martin Vegt has judged a multitude of entries to the Grannies à Gogo photo contest, “Okanagan Reflections”, and selected a total of thirteen winners. Amongst them will be the grand prize winner whose photo will feature on the cover of a beautiful 2014 calendar. A second and third prize will also be named, and all thirteen photos will appear in the calendar.
The public is enthusiastically invited to attend the Gala Celebration to launch this striking calendar on Friday, Oct. 18 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at the Vernon Library (30th Ave and 28th St.) to hear Judge Martin Vegt’s announcement of the winners. He will also give a few comments on what made these photos outstanding. Additionally, from 7:00-7:30 pm those in attendance are asked to vote for their favourite photo entry for the People’s Choice Award.
EASY TO MAIL GIFT
All net proceeds from calendar sales support AIDS-bereaved gogos (grandmothers) in Sabie, South Africa. At $15 they make beautiful gifts to family and friends as a daily reminder of our magnificently diverse North Okanagan. It is an easy-to-mail gift and plenty of room to note the events of each day.
Guests to the “Okanagan Reflections” calendar Gala Celebration are asked to use the side door to the Library on 28thStreet marked with the Grannies à Gogo sign. Admission is by donation.
