Photo Contest – Celebrating 25 Years of Canadians on the Camino de Santiago
Every year, about 5,000 Canadians walk or cycle the ancient pilgrimage routes that lead to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Supporting them in their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual preparations for their journey is the Canadian Company of Pilgrims (CCoP). The Canadian Company of Pilgrims is a non-denominational volunteer-run association that supports Canadians before, during and after their pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
This year, they are proud to celebrate their 25-year anniversary. Twenty-fifth anniversary celebrations include a special photo contest open to all Canadians who have done the Camino.
“We are calling on Canadian pilgrims to submit a single best photo that represents their connection to the Camino. We are especially interested in images that capture the theme and history of the Camino over the years, and that communicate a unique and personal story of their experience on the Camino, with visually rich, creative and inspiring images,” said Lea Pennock, President of the Canadian Company of Pilgrims.
Photo submissions begin midnight September 3, 2019, and close midnight October 31, 2019.
In November, members of the Canadian Company of Pilgrims will have a special opportunity to select the top 25 photos. A select panel of judges will select the top three Grand Prize winners, who will receive a total of $900.00 in prizes. The winning photos will be announced at the next Annual General Meeting of the CCoP in February 2020.
