Cemetery Photograph Contest – The Winner Is…

We received a wonderful response to our Cemetery Contest.  We received 60 photographs from 18 photographers from Canada and the US.  The photographs showcased cemeteries from Oshawa, the GTA, Georgia, California, South Carolina, Scotland, England, Italy, Cuba, Grenada, The Netherlands, and Taiwan.  We thank everyone who participated, promoted the contest, and who submitted their beautiful images.

We are happy to announce that the top photograph honours went to Donna Brittain for her image of the Whitby Abbey Cemetery, Whitby, UK.
