From July 7 to September 30, 2014, all professional and amateur photographers from Quebec are invited to submit their work to the second annual "Le talent de chez nous" contest. With $5,000 in Lozeau gift cards as prizes, this initiative aims to encourage and promote local talent.

Three categories: My city, my neighbourhood / Travel / Portrait

Let your creativity run free and share your best picture in the "Enter" zone. Our jury will select 50 finalists who will have their photos exhibited. The winners of the three jury prizes will be announced during the exhibition’s vernissage.

Exhibition visitors will be invited to vote for the best photo among all categories. There will be a people’s choice prize, a $2,000 Lozeau gift card, in addition to the three $1,000 jury prizes awarded to the winner in each category!
