Send us your favourite photos of Niagara Region and we may share them with the world.
Each week, we select one photo to be profiled on our home page. We send our choice to Niagara This Week to be possibly published in their newspaper. Photos may also be used in other materials produced or sponsored by Niagara Region.
Include a brief description of the photo (50 words max.) including where it was taken and what makes it special to you.
