Post image for Call for Submissions: Downtown Summer Photo Essay

The end of summer is fast approaching and that’s why I thought SUMMER is the perfect topic for’s first photo essay.

Some of the signs of summer downtown are:

  • the full patios at lunch every sunny day
  • the seat on the C-Train that you never usually see
  • the sounds of happy kids at the Eau Claire wading pools
  • the tourist standing uncertainly on a street corner (and hopefully being helped by a HOST)
  • and the crowds that flock to the festivals every weekend
What do you see downtown that reminds you of summer?
You’re invited to submit your photos to our “Summer in Downtown Calgary Photo Essay” by 8:00am on Monday, August 29, 2021. If your photo is selected we’ll post it in the photo essay on this blog, but you’ll retain all rights to your photo(s) and be given credit.
