Live our Heritage:
Photo Contest: Winter Portion
Thanks to all who entered the Winter Session of the Live Our Heritage Photo Competition for either or both of the ‘My Covid Life’ and the ‘Winter Photo’ components. All images received were great. In fact, the quality of photos made it very difficult for our judges to choose the winners. To avoid unintentional bias, the judging was done in a way that all of the photos were given a code, for example, MCL_03#3 meant a judge would only know the MCL = My Covid Life category, _03 is the participant number, and #3 is the photo number. The judges were sent a link to all photos and requested to choose their winners and the results were collated. Congratulations to the winners and enjoy all of the photos and accompanying text! Next up will be the kids’ efforts, which will be posted in the next few weeks.
Some of the entries received did not include a category or easily fit one of the two themes, and so have automatically been added to the appropriate remaining photo competition categories. The other parts of the competition end July 1st , so there’s still more than enough time to enter! We look forward to seeing more photos from you this month.
My Covid Life
1st Place Photo – Patrick Bogert (MCL_01#2)
Snowy night in the park
We spent our winter in Toronto. We usually head south for the winter, but this year we are stuck in Toronto. Looking to get back to Metis early May.
1st Place – Alain Fradette (WA_03#1)
Near my home, at the corner of 132 and Leggatt Road (AKA Page’s Point)
2nd Place – Helen Thornton (MCL_04#5)
Brotherly art therapy.
Diamond-Dot painting was a newfound pastime.

Polar Bear City!
Looks like an Arctic Circle decor! A frozen beach and St. Lawrence River backdrop is paradise for kiddywinks and sledges! Sledging is an all-time favourite activity.
3rd Place – Nathalie Girard (MCL-06#2)
Red Nosed Christmas Party
Why should distance break up the Christmas party? Let’s laugh as a family, even from 700 miles away, with these goofy filters. “We called it red nose…”
3rd Place – Nathalie Girard (WA_06#1)
Covid-19 entered my body. Sickness and isolation, but I NEVER felt alone. My generous village supported and fed me morning, noon and night every day.
