Fire hall photo contest up and running
AA Munro Insurance has launched its 8th Annual Fire Hall Photo Contest. All fire departments in the provinces of Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and New Brunswick are invited to enter.
A $5,000 first prize and a $1,000 second prize will be awarded for Nova Scotia.
There is a new $3,000 prize this year for P.E.I. and New Brunswick.
The idea is simple; AA Munro will award cash prizes to the fire departments which can accumulate the most ‘Likes’ on a team photo posted to AA Munro’s Facebook page.
There is also a special Judges’ Choice prize on Instagram; $500 will be awarded to one Atlantic Canadian who posts a fire related photo on Instagram with the hashtags #Firstinlastout and #aamunro.
“Firefighters are an important part of the insurance family and our communities. These departments are staffed by volunteers and have a hard time raising funds and finding people who want to join. Without their tireless efforts, insurance would be far more expensive and in some cases not available at all,” Wayne Ezekiel, president of AA Munro Insurance, said.
In addition to encouraging friends, family and co-workers to vote, contest organizers ask that anyone who has a photo featured that has a Facebook account, is tagged to increase the awareness of the contest across Facebook.
Photos need to be emailed directly to Firehall@aamunro.com. They will be posted on Facebook within one business day of being received.
The winner will be the fire hall photo with the most likes on its photo by Nov. 9 at 5 p.m.
