County to launch photo contest for website 0
The county will be launching a photo contest as it creates a new tourism website.
At an Oct. 10 tourism development committee meeting, Algonquin Highlands Reeve Carol Moffatt, who sits on the steering committee for the new site, said the group had held its first meeting with Faren Group Inc., the Vaughan-based company that’s been hired to do the revamp.
“We did talk about a need for photography,” Moffatt said, explaining the county would require a number of stock photos.
User agreements have yet to be finalized.
The winning photograph will be featured prominently on the new site and, if the winner is a professional photographer, a link to that person’s website will likely appear.
The county is paying Faren $25,700 plus taxes for the project, which is expected to be completed in early 2013.
The county is also redesigning its bureaucratic website, with that work being done in-house.
