Halifax Goes Wild Photo Contest

Give us your best shot for the Halifax Goes Wild photo contest!


Show off your photo skills and the city’s green spaces in our photo contest, with prizes provided by Atlantic Photo Supply. Here's the answers to all your questions about this contest!


 “What kind of photos are you looking for?” – Photos should depict a green space within the municipality. This could be a park, a beach, your own backyard, or more. Photos can have people in them (with their consent), or not, it’s up to you!

Submit an image to Halifax Goes Wild through Twitter

Send us a tweet with the following text:

Then attach your photo and tell us your name, the name of the photo (if you wish) and when/where the photo was taken. We'll contact you through Twitter if you win!

Unfortunately there's no way to make a fancy button to do this automatically :(

 

Thanks for entering!

Intersection redesign is an example of Urban Forestry Master Plan in action

A long awaited roundabout is going to mean the end of some long standing trees on the Halifax Common.


Work is beginning this week on the conversion of the North Park and Cunard Street intersection into a roundabout and will causes significant changes to the surrounding area. Most noticeably this will involve reshaping the intersection into a traffic circle, including the use of some land that was formerly green space on the North Common.
