July was a much harder month to pick a winner for the RCFM Photo Contest because there were five markets in July and so the number of entries were absolutely astounding. The pictures were fantastic too – so many lovely shots of the people that make our market lively, of the food and goods that make our market so popular, and of the fun and exciting atmosphere we are proud to have created.
Last month, Graham wowed us with his up close and personal shot of beets, and this month, Jacee Tan really captured our special event market with his shot of me in my silly costume to celebrate New Westminster’s 150th birthday, standing in front of a colourful stall. I rented the costume to add some sparkle to the market, and Jacee really made the judges remember the fun we had on July 23rd.
For his efforts, Jacee is awarded a RCFM t-shirt, and will be entered to win a basket full of goodies at the end of the season featuring goods from our vendors.

And please note, if you aren’t comfortable signing up to flickr to post your pictures to the flickr group, you can always email them to us and we’ll do it for you.
