A sampling of last year’s submissions

For the second-year in a row, we are holding a Conference-wide photo contest.

What fun it was last year to see a wide-range of ministry from around Alberta and Northwest Conference! We are looking for photos from congregations and ministries of ANW Conference.  All photos submitted will potentially be used on the website or in other media for the Conference.  The top two photos in each category will receive gift cards from Chapters-Indigo.

When all submissions are received for the March 9 deadline, we will put the photos online and invite people to vote. Do encourage your congregations, friends, family members and others to get involved in the voting!

Photo Categories are the Conference’s Four Goals

  1. Healthy Congregations — e.g. Photos of people at congregational events; Sunday School pageants, etc
  2. Effective Ministry — photos of ministry happening — e.g. worship settings, visitations, outreach work, camping programs, children’s programs, celebration of ministry services, etc.
  3. Strong Public Witness — examples would be sandwich making for homeless centres, a fund raiser for the Mission and Service or other project, food bank program, protest, etc
  4. Open Connections and Communication — examples might be photos of people talking together and other scenes of people making connections with each other.

Prizes to be won

Two prizes will be awarded in each category: $25 gift cards to Chapters-Indigo.
