City kicks off Kawartha Lakes Naturally call for photos

August 24, 2015 - Comprising more than 250 lakes and rivers, rolling hills, farm land as far as the eye can see, forests, trails, incredible sunrises, sunsets that will take your breath away and dreamy night skies, Kawartha Lakes offers an abundance of visual experiences to awaken the senses.

We want to share those beautiful images with the world and we need your help.

As the City began the ongoing Core Service Review in March, residents and business owners have been asked to provide their thoughts and feedback, which has been both helpful and appreciated. We want to continue with that positive engagement by promoting our community and showing off what makes Kawartha Lakes great.

“We have so many incredible places here in the City,” said Kawartha Lakes Mayor Andy Letham. “Whether it is our downtowns, farmers markets, lakes, trails, events or activities, Kawartha Lakes truly is one of the province’s best kept secrets. We want to change that.”

The City is launching a new campaign to draw attention to Kawartha Lakes and all it has to offer. Kawartha Lakes Naturally will be a photographic experience showcasing the best of the City. Whether it is scenic landscapes, architectural delights, agriculture at its best or seasonal fun and recreation, we want your images.

We are asking residents and visitors to share their experiences though high resolution images with the City.

“Almost everyone has a smartphone or camera with them constantly,” said Mayor Letham. “We want to see the photos that people feel make our area special and their favourite memories of Kawartha Lakes.”

Photos submitted will be shared through the City’s social media channels to highlight the incredible area we are fortunate to live in and may be used in City publications and promotional material.

“There are so many great things about Kawartha Lakes,” said Mayor Letham. “We want to show the world why we are so proud and fortunate to call Kawartha Lakes home.”

Photos can be emailed to photo@city.kawarthalakes.on.ca.
