NC Community Photo Contest

Norfolk County is a special place. With charming towns, sprawling countryside, a unique biosphere, and beautiful views of Lake Erie, it’s one of the most beautiful and unique places on Ontario’s south coast. 

It features an abundance of historic sites, cultural events, outdoor recreation activities, and culinary experiences, which makes it a great place to live, explore and photograph.

To celebrate Norfolk Community Day, we invite you to submit your photos that celebrate all things Norfolk, be its beautiful environment, its unique sites, or another one of your favourite spots in Norfolk for a chance to win some great prizes from the Burning Kiln Winery. 


The contest will run from June 13 to June 25, 2022.
