Readers can vote for favourite photo until Aug. 31

More than 60 photographers were at the Abbotsford International Airshow to take their best shot at winning the title of Amateur Photographer of the Year.

And before the judges declare the winner, the public has the opportunity to vote for their favourite image in the People’s Choice Photo Award Contest. More than 31,000 readers have voted so far, and you can continue to do so until Aug. 31.

Images from all of the  photographers, from Vancouver to Nelson and Surrey to Vernon have been posted online.

Readers can look through the photos and decide on their favourite.

Prizes will be awarded to two lucky voters and results will be announced at the end of August. To learn more about the contest or to vote for your favourite image, click here.

The Amateur Photographer of the Year contest is sponsored by London Drugs, Black Press and the Abbotsford International Airshow.

Finalists were asked to submit a minimum of one photograph in the following categories; aircraft in flight or on runway, aircraft/static display, airshow crowd photograph.

Prize certificates sponsored by London Drugs will be awarded to the best photographs of the show in the three categories.

Images can also be viewed on Flickr. Also at Facebook.
