Grannies a’ Gogo release calendar

Martin Vegt has judged entries to the Grannies à Gogo photo contest and has selected a total of 13 winners.

Professional photographer Martin Vegt has judged a multitude of entries to the Grannies à Gogo photo contest, Okanagan Reflections, and has selected a total of 13 winners.

Amongst them will be the grand prize winner whose photo will feature on the cover of a beautiful 2014 calendar. A second and third prize will also be named, and all 13 photos will appear in the calendar.

The public is enthusiastically invited to hear Vegt’s announcement of the winners at the gala celebration to launch this striking calendar today from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Vernon library. Vegt will also give a few comments on what made these photos outstanding. Those in attendance are asked to vote for their favourite photo entry for the People’s Choice Award from 7 to 7:30 p.m.

“All net proceeds from calendar sales support AIDS-bereaved gogos (grandmothers) in Sabie, South Africa. At $15 they make beautiful gifts to family and friends as a daily reminder of our magnificently diverse North Okanagan,” said local Grannies à Gogo chairperson, Sue Harnett. “It is an easy-to-mail gift and there’s plenty of room to note daily events.”

Guests to the Okanagan Reflections gala are asked to use the side door to the library on 28th Street marked with the Grannies à Gogo sign. Admission is by donation.
