The 2017 Worldwide WOW Photo Contest marks our 10th year supporting women and children in need through our annual photography event. We are proud of how far we’ve come.  Elevate has donated over $90,000 to the Canadian Women’s Foundation directly from proceeds of the WOW photo contest.  Over the last 10 years, the WOW contest and its associated events have donated almost $250,000 to other local and national charities supporting organizations focused on elevating those in need.  Elevate’s mission has always been to: 

“To help motivated low income families break the cycle of poverty by providing support in their journey to long-term self-sufficiency.”

and with help from you, Canadian photographers, we’ve made a difference.  

This year’s contest opens on March 6th and closes on April 30th, 2017.  Judging by our panel of professional photographers will take place in the first few weeks of May and winners will be notified via email before the end of May.

For more contest details, please review the Rules & Regulations, Prizes and Judging Process.
