Photo Contest Winners
To help celebrate Purple Day we held a photo contest. Below are the winning photos. These photos incorporated the colour purple in fun, creative, inspiring, and beautiful ways. Congratulations to all the winners!
Photograph Title: The Kwakiutl Hummingbird – Purple Ribbon
This photo features an original design with Kwakiutl hummingbirds and a purple ribbon. These were hand-painted on the shirts. This project was done in honour of a family member with epilepsy.
Photograph Title: Purple Bridge
Quesnel city employees programmed the Fraser River Bridge to light up in purple on March 26, 2013. This photo shows the bridge in all its purple glory! Note: the bridge will also be lit up this year on Purple Day.
Photograph Title: Whales for Epilepsy Awareness
This photo was taken with Fin – the mascot for the Vancouver Canucks. He’s a big fan of Purple Day, and he shows his wacky spirit with a young epilepsy awareness advocate.
Category: Best Purple Outfit
Photograph Title: Embracing Epilepsy
This purple-licious outfit also features home-grown purple produce! This photo was taken in support of a family member with epilepsy.
Photograph title: Support EPILEPSY Awareness
We created a new category just for this picture! This young lady created a display about epilepsy and Purple Day. In her display she states: “Having seizures can create many challenges. I’m determined to fight back and enjoy life. And to raise more awareness about the condition. Wear purple on March 26th.”
