Take Your Best Shot: Youth Photo Exhibition

Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, November 28 from 3 – 5 pm. Prize presentation begins at 4 pm.

Explore St Albert through the lens of our youth!  It’s that time of year again and you’re invited to the Musée Héritage Museum for the fifth annual youth photo contest. Take Your Best Shot has become one of the Museum’s most popular events and each year it sees more amazing talent. This year’s “Nature” themed exhibition had a record number of entries. As well as their photos, entrants were also asked to describe why they chose their subject, providing unique insight into the creativity of St Albert’s younger citizens.

Photos chosen by a jury from three age groups, Grade 3 – 6, Grades 7 – 9, Grades 10 – 12, will be exhibited at the Museum. McBain Camera has generously contributed to gift certificates given for the top three photos in each group. Prizes will be awarded to the top three photos (as decided by the jury) in each age group:

  • 1st prize: $200 gift card to McBain Camera
  • 2nd prize: $150 gift card to McBain Camera
  • 3rd prize: $100 gift card to McBain Camera
