The Promotions Committee is working hard to create posters that help educate others about Therapeutic Recreation. Through these posters we want to visually highlight what “Therapeutic Recreation” means, by showcasing the work we do. With the hopes of accumulating a variety of images, we are holding a Photo Contest! The winner will receive a $100 VanCity Visa!
We are looking for all types of photos, including different populations, interventions, and aspects of TR, and give as much creative freedom as needed.
To enter the contest, you must submit a photo that:
- is at least 2-3MB in its original size
- is accompanied by the photo release form
Every photo submitted that meets these requirements will equal one entry into the contest. For instance, if someone submits 5 photos which meet the requirements, that member’s name will be entered into the contest 5 times. The more photos you enter, the greater your chances are of winning.
The Prize - The winner will receive a prepaid $100 VanCity Visa.
How is the winner determined? One name will be drawn from the group of entries. The draw will take place on November 17th, 2014.
Who can participate in this contest? All active BCTRA Members, Board Members, and Committee Members are encouraged to participate. You may submit a photo on behalf of someone else, your agency, or your department, as long as it meets the requirements listed above.
