You can win!

Want to win two tickets to one of our 2015 Art Deco Photowalks? To enter, all you need to do is answer the question: “what is the best piece of photography advice you’ve ever heard?”

It could be something simple, something sophisticated, something silly or something technical – whatever you like. Just make sure you post your comment by noon on Friday July 3.

We’ll judge the winner and announce it at 4pm on Friday July 3.

What’s at stake?

The prize is two tickets to one of our upcoming Art Deco Photowalks, taking place on Saturdays in July, August and September 2015 at 2 p.m. (value $98).

What is an Art Deco Photowalk?

We’ve partnered with Vancouver Photowalks to take you on a two-hour photography-and-history adventure through downtown’s finest Art Deco heritage. You’ll visit the Vogue Theatre, the Commodore Ballroom, the Power Block, Gotham Steakhouse and – Vancouver’s greatest example of Art Deco – the Marine Building.

Each Photowalk is jointly led by a Forbidden Vancouver storyteller and a Vancouver Photowalks photography coach. Photowalks run each Saturday at 2 p.m. starting July 4, 2015 and running until September 26, 2015.

Space is limited – ensure your spot by booking your tickets now.
