Canadian Harvest – an Age-Old Tradition

Harvest time has always been a big deal in North America; take for example this popular song called “Shine on Harvest Moon”. Recorded over a hundred years ago in 1906, this song is still relevant to harvest season: “Snow time ain’t no time to stay outdoors and spoon,” are some of the lyrics… I wonder if “spoon” meant something different back then?
I’d thought the first day of autumn was today but it turns out it’s still summer…go figure, just when I’d gotten used to it. Anyway, in honour of autumn starting up in two days on September 23, Lenzr has just put out a great new photo contest!

Canadian Harvest Photo Contest on Lenzr

Lenzr wants to see imagery of the Canadian Harvest–show us what’s growing in Canada before the frost. Pumpkins, apples, gourds and squash, wild blueberries… Harvest is a happy time because of the plentiful crops, but it’s also a little anxious because it’s the last food of the season. Try to capture these emotions and more in your photograph and you could win a great prize!

The prize is $400 in cash + a photo licensing agreement with the contest’s sponsor, a brand personality consultant who wants to license your winning photograph to her website.

This contest started September 1, 2011. Voting begins October 15, after which the  top ten  user-ranked photos advance to the sponsor for judging. The winning photograph will be announced on November 1, 2011.

Metal World Photo Contest on Lenzr

Can you think of any cities made entirely of metal? No? That’s because there aren’t any…yet. This new Lenzr contest, Metal World, is asking for submissions depicting a futuristic-looking setting made entirely of metal. A black-and-white setting on your camera might lend  a formidable ambiance to your photograph–make it cold and impersonal!

The prize is a Sony Laptop with a very unique skin, courtesy of this contest’s sponsor, an Ottawa metal roofing company.

This contest started on September 1, 2011, Voting starts October 15, after which the top ten user-ranked photos advance to the Lenzr judges. The winning photograph will be announced on November 1, 2011.

Landscaping and Lawn Care Photo Contest

This is an interesting time of year because September and early October contain the best of two seasons–summer and fall. The new Landscaping and Lawn Care photo contest on Lenzr is looking for submissions from late September–show the judges gardens in their zenith–flowers reaching up to catch the last rays of the summer sun.

The prize for this contest is $250 in eco-friendly garden tools, courtesy of an 100% emissions free property maintenance company.

This contest started on September 1, 2011. Voting starts on October 15, after which the top ten user-ranked photos advance to the Lenzr judges. The winning photograph will be announced on November 1, 2011.
