Picture2050: A Photo Contest


#Picture2050 is a Photography Contest for Citizen Photographers inspired by the City’s
TransformTO Climate Plan.

The Challenge 

Imagine Toronto in the year 2050. What does a green, healthy and equitable city of the future look like?

Submit up to 3 photos that represent the Toronto you would like to see in 2050.

Whether it be elements of the city that represent sustainability, or a moment in time that captures the spirit of inclusive, resilient, and sustainable urban development, we invite you to share your vision with us.

Show us the stories you are a part of and the things that inspire you. Capture actions, events, people, places – anything that you feel is helping Toronto become a better city by 2050.

To achieve a climate-friendly, caring and prosperous city we have to be able to imagine it. Each photograph you submit is a building block of the future city that we will bring to life together.
