Muskoka Pride Challenges Muskoka Businesses and Residents to celebrate Diversity & Inclusion with Window Display Contest and Photo Contest
BRACEBRIDGE, ONTARIO – July 3rd , 2014 – The Muskoka Pride Community is holding two contests that are open to all businesses and residents of Muskoka.
Businesses are challenged to have a window or shelf/counter display that promotes awareness and acceptance for the LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, and Ally) community. They are encouraged to be creative and colourful, creating their window or shelf/counter display and finding ways to incorporate their products.
Last year’s winner, Bracebridge School of Ballet, was not really a “window display” and showed the need for a separate contest for photographs that show LGBTQA support. This year, Muskoka Pride is introducing a photo contest that is open to all residents of Muskoka. Take a photo showing Muskoka’s pride in our LGBTQA community.
Entries to both contests should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 6:00pm on Monday July 21st. Photo contest entries can also be posted to Twitter with the hashtag #MyMuskokaPride to be entered.
All entries for both contests will be posted on the Muskoka Pride website and will be voted on during Muskoka Pride Week (July 17 – 28) on the Muskoka Pride Facebook Page. The winning entry will be the one with the most “likes” and will be announced at the 6th annual Muskoka Pride Picnic, on July 27th at Annie Williams Park in Bracebridge from 12-4pm.
Toronto World Pride concluded on June 29th, and Muskoka Pride wants to continue to show the world what a great destination Muskoka is for the LGTBQA community.
