Point. Click. Shoot. And win a new camera

Success By 6 is inviting the public to submit photos for its 2012 Early Childhood Development Calendar and photographers will have a a chance to win prizes for their work.

Now through to June 13, you can submit photos online at www.successby6bc.ca.

The organization is  looking for a variety of images from across British Columbia and there is no limit to the amount of finalists selected.

So whether you are a novice or professional photographer, a parent parent-to-be or a caregiver of the cutest kids in the world, send in your photos.

Finalists will be selected weekly and posted onto the Success By 6 Facebook page.

“Like” your favourite photos and don’t forget to tell all your friends and family to “like” it too.

The photo with the most “likes” will win the grand prize of a Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2MP DSLR Camera.

The Success By 6 Early Childhood Development calendar has been produced thanks to the generosity of the Credit Unions of BC.

Its support has made it possible to offer the calendar for free to more than 55,000 families with young children across the province.

Inside this calendar, parents and caregivers will find valuable information to support them in the most important and rewarding job in the world – nurturing young children.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to be involved in creating this great resource”, says Carol Ellison, Central Okanagan’s Success By 6 Coordinator.

In 2011, 3,000 calendars were distributed locally

“It’s the number one Success By 6 resource that families ask for every year”, said Ellison.

“We are so thankful for the generous support of our local credit unions —Interior Savings, Valley First, Prospera, and Envision—that have partnered with credit unions across B.C. for three years now to make this much needed and desired calendar possible for young families.”

Success By 6 in B.C. is a joint initiative of United Ways, credit unions, the B.C government through the Ministry of Children and Family Development and community leaders.

The initiative is dedicated to ensuring that children aged up to six have access to programs and supports that help ensure healthy growth and development.

Success By 6 builds community through engaging citizens in early childhood development and funding programs that include literacy, nutrition, children’s play, parenting and family skills development.
