The most fascinating building could be the abandoned shack across town or it could be a brand new building that is a testament to new age architecture. This challenge is the brain child of Rob & Tina from Just Below 63 and they are donating the prize this time, A WICKED AWESOME Hay River Travel Coffee mug!! I know your not going to want to miss out on this one, I sure don't. Send in your photos to us at nunavutnonsense AT gmail DOT com, by Thursday, April 24, and the judging will start Friday April 25. Please make sure your submissions are sized for the web.
Congratulations to Kennie of Tales from the arctic, you won best Tribute to the night photo! It was a close race with Rob, who worked very hard at winning. Nunavut Nonsense will have to offer photo cards for future prizes, as this one stirred quite a response in the polls.
Don't forget to participate in our next challenge listed below. Remember anyone can get involved!
This one was thought up by Rob and Tina of Just Below 63. Send us in your photo (sized 72 DPI) of your Northern Community's Weird Landmark. Maybe it's man made, maybe it was created naturally. Most interesting Landmark will win you a pair of caribou antler Ulu (woman's knife) earrings! Don't hesitate, last day to submit your photo is Thursday, April 10th. Submissions will be up for judging Friday, April 11th.
Here is my example of a landmark. It was built to commemorate a sunken ship, I can't tell which one as the children of the community have removed the plaque. I call this the ice cream cone.

This is a place for all of us Northerners (including anyone from NWT, Yukon, Nunavik, ect.) to get creative and have some fun! This blog will feature photo challenges, contests, poetry and songs all relative to Canada's north. Everyone is welcome to participate, living in the north or not! I look forward to what we can come up with to express our gratitude for this cold land.
