Enter To Win a Framed “Hope In Shadows” 2016 print

2016 calendar showcases top photos from 12 years of contest submissions by Downtown Eastside residents

For twelve years, Pivot Legal Society sponsored a photo contest open to Downtown Eastside residents and those living on low incomes. Winning photos were included in an annual calendar, launched each October and sold through a vendor program that creates meaningful employment opportunities for people impacted by poverty.

This year, Pivot Legal Society and Megaphone Magazine are partnering on Hope In Shadows, offering a retrospective selection of photos from 12 years of contests.

The 2016 Hope In Shadows calendar has just hit the streets, and to celebrate the community initiative's 13th year, three lucky Tyee readers will get a chance to take home their choice of a framed Hope In Shadows print.

Please keep reading below for more information on Hope In Shadows, and Megaphone Magazine’s vendor program.

Contest ends Monday, November 2nd at midnight.
