A photograph by Richmond’s Raymond Ong placed in the top 10 out of 550 entries in BC Hydro’s fourth annual Team Power Smart photo contest.

This year’s theme was wasteful behaviour and judges looked at how entries captured wastefulness. Ong’s photograph, titled “A little light reading,” shows a little boy reading a book surrounded by 10 different lighting fixtures. To save energy, BC Hydro recommends turning off unnecessary lights.

BC Hydro runs the Team Power Smart photo contest in partnership with London Drugs and Royal BC Museum each year for Power Smart Month in October.

The judging panel reviewed 550 entries. Submissions were judged on originality, relevance to the theme, composition, lighting and technical qualities.

The top ten finalists receive $100 London Drugs photo lab gift cards. Their photos will be displayed in Victoria’s Royal BC Museum from Nov. 30, 2012 to Jan. 27, 2013.

The grand prize winner is Comox resident John Kelsey. He will receive a Nikon D700 SLR camera package from London Drugs. His photo will be featured in newspaper advertisements in his community, on the Lower Mainland and in Victoria.
