Hamilton’s waterfalls belong on postcards and we’re up for the challenge! But we need your help.

Site sponsor Chris Ecklund, webmistress Rose, and Joe Hollick aka ‘Mr. Waterfall’ have been working together for awhile now to design a series of postcards featuring Hamilton area waterfalls. What we need now is input from our site visitors, namely photos!

Got some great images of Hamilton falls that you have taken yourself? We want to see them! Should they be especially great shots, they could end up immortalized on some of the postcards. To be eligible, the photos must:

1)      Have been taken by you. Do not send us someone else’s work!

2)      Be a minimum of 300 dpi. Put your camera setting on a high resolution. Ask a professional for advice if necessary.

3)      Be in bmp, .jpg or TIFF format. No gifs, pdfs, or any other file format.

We're interested in seeing images that are not just your average waterfall shot. Go for the best lighting, best angle, best weather conditions. Remember that thousands of people could end up wearing your picture on their T-shirts and sending it on a postcard, etc. We want to see only the best.

Photographers whose images are selected will be required to release all rights to the image. In return, you will be acknowledged on the postcard itself and recognized as a contributor toward Hamilton’s re-branding as the Waterfall Capital of the World.

Send your entries to info@cityofwaterfalls.ca. Be sure to include your name, mailing address, and phone number in your email. Deadline for entries is September 1, 2008.

Please note: all contest entries become the property of the City of Waterfalls site

Calling all Hamilton Waterfall Photographers! We are proud to announce our first ever "Waterfall Wanted" contest! The top prize is $1000, and the winning image will appear on our first ever T-shirt! So get those cameras out and start snapping away! If you belong to any waterfall enthusiast groups, be sure to spread the word among the members.

More details to follow. We would like to announce the winner at our formation meeting, which might have a very special and celebrated guest of honour in attendance. This individual is world-famous for his association with water, but that's all we're going to say right now.... This gives you roughly three weeks to get your photo entries ready.

The contest is open to all photographers, whether amateur or professional. The winner will have to sign over all rights to the picture, which will also be posted on this site.

Deadline for entries is September 1, 2008.

Please note: all contest entries become the property of the City of Waterfalls site
