With this annual photo contest, we aim to pay tribute to the beauty of our world and contribute to the promotion of photography. Photos of a young child playing with the neighbour’s dog, birds flying low over the lake at dawn, the impressive architecture of the CN Tower, a stranger strolling down the street, a flower, an insect, a table set for dinner… photographic opportunities are everywhere. Pro and amateur photographers are invited to share their photographic talent and show their vision of the world we live in. The World We Live In 2013 photo contest is now closed. Thank you to all participants! Our April/May 2014 issue features the portfolio of winning images. The next edition of The World We Live In will be announced in June — stay tuned! Meanwhile, check out the winners’ gallery here:
