Photographers are invited to submit images of “Vistas of the Thames River” for the 2015 Thames Talbot Land Trust (TTLT) Photography Contest. The contest is designed to raise awareness and funds for the land-trust. The top 25 entries will be featured in the inspirational “Vistas of the Thames” poster created when the contest closes on October 19th 2015. The photo contest and poster is a legacy project marking a big milestone in 2015, the 15th anniversary of the TTLT.
We are excited to see the photographs and the talent that comes in as people aim to capture the inspirational beauty of the Vistas of the Thames River. It’s a great way to encourage everyone in our community – young and old, amateur and professional photographers – to take time out to appreciate the uniqueness of our Canadian Heritage River, the namesake of the TTLT – the Thames.

The Awesome Foundation of London generously awarded the TTLT the funds to cover printing costs for 1000 Vistas of the Thames posters, suitable for framing, featuring the 25 winning photos. The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority is providing generous in-kind support for the project and assistance with retail sales of the final poster at their offices. Sales of the “Vistas of the Thames” posters will provide funds for the TTLT to fulfill its mandate to protect lands and waters of ecological, agricultural and cultural value along the Thames River and historic Talbot Trail.
Tickets are available on the TTLT website for the “Vistas of the Thames” party on November 12th 2015 at Labatt’s where we will announce the photography contest winners, award the prizes, and launch the sale of the “Vistas of the Thames” posters just in time for Christmas. Mark your calendar as this promises to be an exciting event at a fun venue, for a great cause.
