Encouraging all Edmontonians to celebrate winter in the city, and to keep our neighbourhoods looking beautiful!

The Winterscapes photo contest is all about awarding gardens, art and play in the winter. You can create a winterscape in your front yard, community hall, office/business building or school.  A winterscape is a way of decorating your wintry yards and landscapes using snow, ice, natural objects and lights. Winterscapes help beautify our Edmonton neighbourhoods. Get tips from some creative locals in our blog, What's In A Winterscape.  You can nominate your own winterscape or someone else's!
