The Town of Ponoka has launched a photo contest that invites citizens to submit photos that showcase the community and the people who live here.

“We are looking for photos that capture images of our citizens enjoying the many features and amenities that Ponoka has to offer, such as walking, cycling, jogging or rollerblading on our beautiful river valley trail system, or playing in our parks and playgrounds,” says Town of Ponoka Communications Manager Sandra Smith. 

The photos can feature citizens enjoying Ponoka’s outdoor and indoor facilities such as the Aquaplex or the racquetball courts, curling rink or other ice surfaces at the Arena Complex. “They can even simply be photos of a family or children walking to school, or playing with their dog at a local park, or people sitting on a park bench while appreciating the natural beauty around them. We’re looking for photos of people of all ages in a variety of local settings that best showcase our community,” says Smith.
