Summer’s back in the West End! And you know what that means… Beaches, sunsets, festivals, fireworks, parks, patios, and pride! After the success of last year’s #WeAmaze Photo Contest, we thought we’d invite you to relive the West End summer magic all over again.

To enter the #WeAmaze Photo Contest, snap a photo of yourself and your friends doing what they love anywhere in the West End (the area of downtown Vancouver west of Burrard) and use #WEAmaze and @WestEndBIA and our co-host @IntracorpCanada in the caption. But don’t just limit your entries to sunset shots. We want you to show us where you hang out when you’re not at the beach too! Help us showcase the energy that makes up the West End’s three great streets.

We’ll review the entries each week on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and our resident West End photographer Caitlin Rowe will select her weekly favourite. This year we’re teaming up with the folks at Intracorp Canada and The Jervis to offer some fantastic weekly prizes. Each of these weekly favourites will be placed into a shortlist for a chance to win a brand new Electra Loft 7i city bike and $100 accessories package ($1000 value) courtesy of Denman Bike Shop.

Follow the West End BIA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for details. Contest closes September 21, 2015. No purchase necessary to enter.


Who can enter?

Canadian residents 18 years of age or older.

Why is entering so easy?

What constitutes a winning pic?

The West End BIA and Intracorp Canada will host a Voting Event in the West End in October 2015 to select the winner based on Caitlin Rowe’s weekly shortlisted photographs. The images with the most votes at the Voting Event will win the Grand Prize. More details on this to be announced in the coming weeks.
