Submit your favourite photo of Lake Windermere to the regatta photo contest.

“A Moment on Lake Windermere” Photo Contest

Submit your favourite moment on the lake for the 2012 Lake Windermere Regatta during Summerlude.

Now that it is officially summer, it’s time to start thinking about fun days on Lake Windermere! The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are going to be hosting a great family event to celebrate Lake Windermere as part of Summerlude this July.  The event, the Lake Windermere Regatta, celebrates beautiful Lake Windermere and the people who care about it.

“A Moment on Lake Windermere” photo contest will take place as part of the regatta.  All submissions need to be received by Monday, July 16 and the winners will be announced during the regatta on Saturday, July 21. The theme of your photos should be your favourite moments captured on Lake Windermere — from fun-filled afternoons of boating to that picture-perfect sunset.

To Enter: Capture your moment! Then submit: 1) your photo and 2) your answer to the question: “Why do I love Lake Windermere?” to be eligible to win great prizes at this year’s regatta. A panel of expert photographers will judge photos. Submit your photos soon!

Rules: Your photo will be judged on technical quality, clarity and composition, but also a flair for the unexpected and the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment. Photographs must have been shot by the entrant.

For more information, or to submit a photo, contact Kirsten Harma, Program Co-ordinator for the Lake Windermere Ambassadors, at 250-341-6898 or

The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are a group of citizens who see Lake Windermere as a vital natural resource that contributes to this area’s wildlife and ecosystem health, serves as a cultural resource, and contributes to the local economy and a very unique sense of place.  Funding for the Regatta is provided by the Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Valley Community Foundation, Regional District of East Kootenay and District of Invermere. The Regatta is proud to be a part of Columbia Valley Summerlude, sponsored in part by The Residences at Fairmont Ridge.
