Canada 150 in the Capital Photo & Video Contest

Canada Day in Canada’s capital is a one of a kind Canadian experience and we want to see it from your perspective!  From June 28-July 5, 2017 we will be holding the Canada 150 in the Capital photo & video contest during our super-sized Canada 150 celebrations! We want to see your pics and videos as you celebrate Canada 150 with your friends, family and fellow Canadians in Ottawa. From the exciting festivities, downtown at one of the official celebrations sites, to parties in your local neighbourhood or even your backyard BBQ, we want to see it all. We’re looking for fun selfies, funny Boomerang videos, photos of your Canada Day outfits (and your pet’s!), pics of friends and family and images and videos that capture the true essence of Canada Day and what it means to be Canadian. There is one mega prize to be won, so charge those batteries, get out your camera, tablet or phone and get snapping!


Photo and video submission takes place June 28 – July 5, 2017. Submit a photo or video through Facebook at or through Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #MyOttawa and #CanadaDay150. Please be sure to include the location of your photo in your Instagram caption or Tweet. You may submit multiple entries, so show us what you got!
