What Do You Think Mississauga Will Look Like in 2050?


Published June 5, 2018 at 12:59 am


If you’re passionate about climate change and the role it will play in our city’s future, this could be the opportunity for you — and you may even get something good out of it if you win.

The city is inviting both adults and youth to participate in Imagine2050: A photo contest where participants can show what a low carbon and resilient city looks like to them.

Entrants are required to submit up to three photos capturing anything (events, people, places, etc.) that they feel is helping — or hindering — Mississauga in becoming a healthy, prosperous city by the year 2050.

The contest is connected to the city’s Climate Change Action Plan, which is currently being developed to help prepare Mississauga for the impacts of a changing global climate.

While there’s no limits to what you can capture, your photos must be taken in Mississauga.

Photos will be judged based on originality, creativity, and connection to the following three themes: The reality of climate change, the city taking action, and everyone having a role to play.

The contest is open now and will run until July 14, 2018. Results will be announced in September.

The winners — one adult and one youth — will be awarded a $100 Erin Mills Town Centre gift card and an InstaMax camera. Additionally, the collection of finalists will be framed and featured in a public exhibit (date and location to be announced later).

For more information on how to participate, check the contest website here.

Good luck to all entrants!
