The Metchosin Foundation offers four scholarships through the generous donations of our members. This year we have increased the value of each of the four catagories to $750. For more information:

We are delighted to be partnering with the Metchosin Arts and Cultural Centre Asscociation (MACCA) to hold a photographic contest in the fall of 2018. The goal of this exciting new contest and exhibition is to represent the biodiversity of Metchosin through photographic skills. Here's your opportunity to showcase the wild beauty of Metchosin, we await your creative responses!

The contest and exhibition is open to all residents of Canada of any age level. Both amateur and professional photographers may participate. Submissions are limited to three photographs for each photographer and there is a $5 fee for each photograph. All received photos will be included in the exhibition.

The images in the submissions must be taken in the District of Metchosin during 2018. There are four categories for submission and two age groups within each category. The categories are:

    • Landscapes, seascapes, mixtures of subjects

    • Plants, lichens, and mushrooms

    • Birds and insects

    • Other animals

The principal subjects in the photographs must be non-domesticated species (i.e., not sheep, dogs, caged birds, garden plants, etc.) growing and living in Metchosin.

Submissions from photographers eighteen years and younger will be judged as junior submissions. An external panel of  judges will select first, second, and third place awards for each category and for each of the two age groups.  All winners will receive certificates, their awards will be noted in the exhibition, and they will be mentioned in exhibition publicity.
