Cloverdale and Clayton teens can enter photo and caption contest for prizes, publication

Enter to win a $100 gift card to Guildford Town Centre, publication in the Cloverdale Reporter

A photograph can mean different things to different people, but the caption is what really expresses the photographer’s intent and brings the photo to life.

According to an old proverb, “a picture is worth a thousand words” but, according to Shakespeare, “brevity is the soul of wit” – capturing the essence of a photograph in a caption of just a few words is a challenging literary art form.

Local teens have the opportunity to hone their photo-caption skills in a new contest hosted by the Cloverdale Library in partnership with the Cloverdale Reporter.

The Cloverdale Teens Summer Photo & Caption Contest opens June 27. It’s open to teens ages 13–18, living in Clayton or Cloverdale. A caption – maximum 12 words – must accompany each entry.

The grand prize winner will recieve a $100 gift card to Guildford Town Centre and three runners-up will recieve a $20 gift card for Cineplex, Chapters/Indigo or Tim Hortons, as well as some smaller prizes. The winner and runners up will have their photos published in the Cloverdale Reporter at the end of the summer.

For full contest details, visit or contact Cloverdale Library at 604-598-7326.
