Ian Walsh Photography Contest


First Place


Second Place


Third Place

Kingston – where a unique blend of urban and rural combine to make one remarkable city. With historic roots, rich culture, a vibrant restaurant scene, local creators and everything in between, Kingston abounds with a unique flavour. Sit on a patio, watch the sailboats on the lake, take in a live performance, or simply lose yourself in the street scene around you. The heritage of Kingston and its limestone beginnings have seeped into every aspect of this place, where a leisurely pace is encouraged and the good things in life can be savoured.

The 2019 Theme for the Ian Walsh Photography Contest is ‘Made in Kingston’, with the goal being for passionate people – residents and visitors – to submit their photos capturing Kingston’s vibrant maker community. We want to see it all: farmer’s fields growing local produce, our vibrant live music scene, unique creations from our talented maker community, plated appetizers and entrees, works of art from our artists and creators – if it’s made in Kingston, we want to see!

Just a reminder that this contest is open to everyone – both professionals and hobbyists alike!

Before entering, be sure to read the contest’s Official Rules and Regulations.
