With summer now upon us, this new season saw our Celebrate Spring Photo Sweepstakes sadly come to an end. For this sweepstakes we tasked photographers of all levels to capture and submit a photo that celebrates the beauty of spring and the renewal it brings!
We loved seeing all your beautiful photos, as there were photos of pets, weddings, family, and fun all submitted. We also had the pleasure of seeing so many wonderful photos of the blooming cherry blossoms, a symbol of spring we wanted to celebrate! As a Japanese company, when we think of spring, we think of one of the most celebrated symbols in Japanese culture; the cherry blossom! The Celebrate Spring Photo Sweepstakes was supported by the general Consulate of Japan in Toronto and their intention this year was to celebrate the 10th Anniversary and the completion of their initiative the Sakura project! The Sakura project was started to draw attention to the blooming of cherry blossoms in Canada and to educate people on what they symbolize. For more information about the Sakura Project please visit their website here.

After reviewing the beautiful images we had submitted, sadly we could only pick ten winners at random. Please take a look at some of the photos our winners submitted!
