September 21, 2012 – In 2006, Montréal was designated a UNESCO City of Design. Design in an integral part of the Montréal landscape; so much so, it could be said that it is encoded in the city’s DNA: in architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning, not to mention graphic, industrial, interior, and fashion design… in all its forms, design it is part of our everyday lives. To highlight this, the Centre d’histoire de Montréal, in collaboration with the City of Montréal’s Bureau du design and Tourisme Montréal, is proud to launch the online photography competition, Montréal à l’œil.
Open to all photographers – amateurs and professionals alike of any age – the competition invites residents and visitors to snap a photo that, in their opinion, represents the pinnacle of design in Montréal. Do you love design, photography and Montréal? Then this is the perfect opportunity to combine all three with your talent.
To enter, simply submit a maximum of two digital photos via the online form to the Centre d’histoire de Montréal by February 15, 2013. Photos must be in high-resolution (300 ppp) jpg format and measure 4 800 ppp X 6 000 ppp (16” X 20”/ 40 cm X 50 cm). Consult full contest rules for details.
Three prizes will be awarded by Centre d’histoire de Montréal and its partners.
First Prize (Tourisme Montréal)
A photography contract of a $2,000 value for Tourisme Montréal.
Second Prize (Photoservice)
A $1,000 coupon redeemable at Photo Service.
Third Prize (Bureau du design, City of Montréal)

So go ahead – grab your camera and get snapping!
